Healthy Living Programs


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.

Participants work with Y staff trained in supportive cancer care to safely achieve their goals such as:

  • Building muscle mass and strength
  • Increasing flexibility and endurance
  • Improving confidence and self-esteem
