LIVESTRONG at the YMCA
Cancer is a life-changing disease that takes a tremendous physical and emotional toll on those affected. The Y and LIVESTRONG have joined together to create LIVESTRONG at the Y, a research-based physical activity and well-being program designed to help adults currently battling cancer as well as cancer survivors reclaim their total health. Participants work with Y staff who are trained in supportive cancer care to safely achieve such goals 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 Y helps people move beyond cancer in mind, body, and spirit.
