LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA: Healthy Living During or After Cancer

This program supports cancer survivors to get to their “new normal” by reducing the severity of therapy side effects, improving energy levels and self-esteem.  The goal of the program is to assist participants so that they can continue to practice a healthy lifestyle as a way of life during treatment and beyond.

This is a free, twelve-week, small group program designed for adult cancer survivors. This 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 the shift to feeling physically and emotionally strong enough to attempt to return to their normal life or their “new normal”. The program is conducted outside of medical facilities to emphasize that LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is about health, not disease. Instructors are trained in the elements of cancer, post rehab exercise and supportive cancer care.

Next Class will begin Tuesday, January 31, 2017 and are held at the Itasca County Family YMCA.  Preregistration is required.  The program is free for all cancer survivors.
