Livestrong

Partners in Healing the Whole Person

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 a research based program designed to help adult cancer survivors reclaim their total health.

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA focuses on the emotional well-being of survivors and their families by providing a supportive community where people can connect during treatment and beyond.

Program Goals

  • Improve energy levels & self esteem
  • Build muscle mass and strength
  • Increase flexibility and endurance
  • Improve funtional ability to do everday tasks
  • Reduce the severity of therapy side effects and prevent unwated weight changes
    Develop an ongoing fitness program for participants to continue and practice a healthy lifestyle, not only as a part of recovery, but as a way of life
