Recent medical research has shown that exercise can counteract the often debilitating side effects of cancer treatment. When cancer survivors participate in moderate levels of physical activity, fatigue is reduced, physical strength is increased and quality of life is significantly improved. Unfortunately, many cancer survivors do not engage in any activity during and after treatment because they don’t know where to go for the special kind of program they need. LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA is free, 12 week program designed for small groups of adult cancer survivors. The goal of the program is to help participants build muscle mass and strength, increase flexibility and endurance, and improve functional ability. Additional goals include reducing the severity of therapy side effects, preventing unwanted weight changes and improving energy levels and self esteem. The program is led by our staff that have been specially trained in the physical and emotional needs of cancer survivors. When a cancer survivor walks through our doors, they will become a part of the YMCA family. LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA will engage cancer survivors by focusing on the whole person and will provide a supportive, community environment where people affected by cancer can connect during treatment and beyond. For more information about LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, please contact Tom Black at (508) 879-4420 x39. CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS and FIRST RESPONDERS.
