The Y's goal to provide support to our members and participants during this time of isolation and social distancing. We are inviting all survivors to participate in twice a week classes to maintain health and provide a support system virtually. "Home workout kits" will be made available so you are able to utilize them during the exercise portion of the classes (tubing, dumbbells and ball). Intake appointments for admittance into class will take place over Zoom. Hempler Food Group has generously sponsored this session of LIVESTRONG.
“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
The YMCA began serving survivors in 2011 with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center's program, Exercise & Thrive.
In 2016, we started using the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA curriculum. This evidence-based program continues to fulfill 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."
