Survive and thrive after Cancer with the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program
Do you know someone who has been affected by cancer? With over 12 million cases in our country, many of us have a friend, family member or a spouse who has been diagnosed with cancer. The YMCA of York and York County provides an evidence based program that helps cancer survivors and patients regain their physical and mental strength.
The “LIVESTRONG at the YMCA” program is a FREE 12-week program that supports cancer survivors in regaining their physical, emotional and spiritual strength. Currently, this program is offered at the Bob Hoffman Dover Branch, Eastern Branch, Southern Branch, and York Branch locations. This health and wellness exercise program is conducted in a small group environment that includes individualized attention for each participant. Adult survivors are eligible to join the program during all stages of recovery. This program also serves and embraces the families and caregivers that have been affected by the disease through a free family membership throughout the course of the program.
“Just as the name describes, LIVESTRONG has taught me how to live strong. I am stronger mentally and physically since completing the program, and made, what I hope will be, life-long friends in the process.” – Kelly K
