An informational meeting about the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA will be held from 5:45 to 6:45 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 19 at the YMCA Active Living Center Classroom A. Meet the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA team, talk to former graduates and learn about the program. The next session will start Oct. 8.

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.

The 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.
