Healthy Living Program Spotlight: LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA

Tue, Jun 2nd 10:10AM

Are you or a loved one a recent cancer survivor? If so, you may be eligible for our free LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA cancer survivor program. LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA is a free, 12-week, small group program designed for adult cancer survivors and their caregivers. This program fulfills the important need of supporting the increasing number of cancer survivors who find themselves in the transitional period between completing their cancer treatment and the shift to feeling physically and emotionally strong enough to attempt to return to their normal life or their “new normal.” Through this program, we are creating communities among cancer survivors and guiding them through safe physical activity, helping them build supportive relationships, and reducing stress—leading to an improved quality of life. You do not have to be a current YMCA member to participate. 

The program gives participants a supportive environment and a feeling of community with their fellow survivors, caregivers, YMCA staff and members. YMCA fitness instructors work with each participant to fit the program to their individual needs. The instructors are trained in the elements of cancer, post rehab exercise and supportive cancer care. The summer session begins June 15.
