PARTNERS IN HEALING
THE WHOLE PERSON
LIVESTRONG at the YMCA
Offered at Bellingham and Lynden Program Centers
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 YMCA, a research-based physical activity and well-being program designed to help adult cancer survivors reclaim their total health.
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 as the YMCA is helping people move beyond cancer in spirit, mind and body.
If you are a cancer survivor who has completed your treatment, then this might be a good time to regain your energy and strength, meet other survivors and improve your mood.
FREE for participation of survivor & one support person. Membership included with participation.
