“When I came to LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, it was with awareness that I could no longer do my highly active job. I felt my treatment-damaged muscles were ruined forever. But at the end of the 12 weeks, I was able to do a few hours a week. After a second 12 weeks, I was strong enough to accept as much work as I wanted to.” –Whatcom Family Y LIVESTRONG participant
In 2008, Y-USA and The LIVESTRONG Foundation® created LIVESTRONG at the YMCA. This research-based program fulfills the important need of supporting the increasing number of cancer survivors who find themselves in the transitional period between completing their cancer treatment and feeling physically and emotionally strong enough to attempt to return to their normal life or their "new normal."
FREE for cancer survivor and one support person. A YMCA 12-week membership is also included for free for both. The costs associated with the program are underwritten by the YMCA Annual Community Support Campaign.
