Wang YMCA offers fitness program for cancer survivors
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 at the YMCA is helping people move beyond cancer in spirit, mind and body.
COMING IN 2013 TO THE WANG YMCA
LIVESTRONG is free of charge for participants and open to both Y members and those not currently members of the Y. For more information, or if you are interested in making a donation to support the LIVESTRONG program, contact Tim Botto at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-426-2237 x 234.
