LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a twelve-week, small group program designed for adult cancer survivors. 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.” The program is conducted outside of medical facilities to emphasize that LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is about health, not disease.
This program is currently offered at nearly 300 YMCA locations across the country. Show your support for bringing this program to 30 more Ys now.
“I could achieve things much more with a personal trainer that understands the effect that chemo and radiation than I was ever going to do on my own…You don’t have to do it on your own. There’s a program there to help you regain your confidence, your balance, your coordination, your muscles, your zest for life, and to know that there’s quality of life ahead of you” – Sam, A LIVESTRONG at the YMCA participant
