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.


Coping with cancer, the treatments involved, and the return to normal life, is more manageable with a network of support.

The Y is proud to bring our community this 12 week program. LIVESTRONG at the YMCA fulfills the important need to support cancer survivors, emphasizing a survivor’s health, not the disease.

1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime according to the National Cancer Institute. Research has shown that moderate levels of appropriate physical activity can reduce fatigue, boost self-esteem and improve muscle strength and physical endurance in individuals following cancer treatment.
