A research-based program offering people affected by cancer a safe, supportive environment to participate in physical and social activities focused on strengthening the whole person. YMCA staff, trained in supportive cancer care, work with participants to achieve goals such as building muscle mass and strength, increasing flexibility and endurance, and improving confidence and self-esteem. In addition to physical benefits, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA focuses on the emotional well-being of survivors and their families by providing a supportive community where people impacted by cancer can connect during treatment and beyond. By focusing on the whole person and not the disease, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA helps people move beyond cancer in spirit, mind, and body.

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is offered at no charge to participants.
