YMCA LIVESTRONG

LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA is a FREE program tailored to fit the specific needs of adult cancer survivors who would like to improve the quality of their lives before, during, and after treatment.

  • Enhance functional ability to do everyday tasks
  • Improve energy levels, build muscle mass and strength
  • Reduce the severity of therapy side effects and prevent unwanted weight changes
