Patients undergoing cancer treatment are more at risk for osteoporosis and bones weakened from metastatic cancer can break or fracture. Sunlight is the major source of vitamin D to help your bones absorb and retain calcium.

During the Winter months you may actually need short periods of exposure in peak UV times ie 10am to 3pm to get enough vitamin D. It’s important to talk with your medical team about how much vitamin D you need each day.
