LiveSTRONG®

LiveSTRONG® At The YMCA

Cancer is a life-changing disease that takes a tremendous physical and emotional toll on those affected. LiveSTRONG® at the YMCA is the result of these two organizations joining forces to offer a research-based physical activity and well-being program to adult cancer survivors designed to help them reclaim their total health. Y staff trained in supportive cancer care help participants to achieve their goals such as building muscle mass and strength; increasing flexibility and endurance; and improving confidence and self-esteem. In addition to physical benefits, the program focuses on the emotional well-being of survivors and their families by providing a supportive community where individuals affected by cancer can connect during treatment and beyond.
