  LIVESTRONG AT THE YMCA



HELPING CANCER SURVIVORS FEEL ALIVE!

RECRUITING PARTICIPANTS FOR PROGRAM
Our YMCA is proud to offer LIVESTRONG at the YMCA to help cancer survivors feel alive again! This 12-week program is designed to help survivors overcome the effects of fatigue and deconditioning from treatment and the disease. The program is for adult survivors from the point of diagnosis through the balance of life and includes a family membership during the 12-week program.

Our YMCA offers the LIVESTRONG program each quarter of the year.  Please check with the individual branches listed below for specific start dates.  Participants do not need to be YMCA members -- so please share this with anyone you think might be interested.

Prior to beginning the program, all participants will be asked meet with a LIVESTRONG specialist at the YMCA for an intake appointment. The intent of the intake is to properly review each survivor’s medical needs and cancer history to create a personal and appropriate wellness plan.

Participants work with Y staff trained in supportive cancer care to safely achieve their goals such as building muscle mass and strength; increasing flexibility and endurance; and improving confidence and self-esteem. By focusing on the whole person and not the disease, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is helping people move beyond cancer in spirit, mind and body. Click here for more information.
