TAKING ACTION, CHANGING ODDS
Our next session will be Mondays and Thursdays beginning September 6, 2018.
LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is an evidence-based program that helps adult cancer survivors reclaim their health and wellbeing following a cancer diagnosis. The Wilkes-Barre Family YMCA creates a welcoming community in which survivors can improve their strength and physical fitness, diminish the severity of therapy side effects, develop supportive relationships, and improve their quality of life.
How It Works
- Small group, supportive environment
- 12-week program with two 90-minute sessions per week
- Includes cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, balance, and flexibility exercises
- Facilitated by certified instructors with special training
Who Can Participate?
Any adult 18 years old or older who is living with or beyond cancer treatment can participate in the program.
