PARTNERS IN HEALING THE WHOLE PERSON

LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA

 

At the Y, we believe in freely providing the gift of hope to the people in our community who are experiencing cancer.

LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA allows cancer survivors with the opportunity to come to the Y to heal. We believe in partnering with people experiencing cancer to create a safe, loving and caring environment. Cancer knows no boundaries, but we believe in the strength of community and that every survivor deserves unconditional support, a chance to belong and an opportunity to feel “normal” as they regain their strength.

At no cost, cancer survivors will have the opportunity twice each week to engage in a proven physical activity program under the guidance of qualified instructors trained in the LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA curriculum. Each survivor will also be provided a membership to the Y during the 12 week program.

We believe in the power of relationships and belonging to heal. We believe in supporting the cancer survivor with the hope that this is the beginning of their relationship with the Y.

Human connection heals and it is critical that we build small communities of cancer survivors at all YMCA branches.
