At The Y we are here to help YOU and all cancer survivors live well.  Through the YMCA partnership with the LIVESTRONG program, we are able to offer a community-supported program to keep you moving and strong.  

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a small-group exercise and movement program for the adult cancer survivor that empowers the participants to improve their health and quality of life while diminishing the adverse affects of cancer or various cancer treatments.  Each 12-week session is comprised of classes that meet for two times a week.  All programs receive a family membership to the YMCA for the session's duration, with options to extend membership beyond the end of the program cycle. 

"We are thrilled to be able to offer this program to cancer survivors in our community.  Cancer is life-changing.  How strong a person feels in spirit, mind and body directly impacts how he or she lives through and beyond treatment, " says Mary Claire McHugh, Health and Wellness Director at the YMCA.  " At The Y, we work to give all people the opportunity to meet their health and wellness goals and are delighted to collaborate with LIVESTRONG to offer those who have been diagnosed with cancer the support they need to build both emotional and physical strength."

"Ya, I'm back and better than ever.  I owe it all to LiveStrong.  LiveStrong picked me up and put me back on my feet after I went through chemo and surgery for breast cancer.." Read about Heidi Hodges recovery in her Door County Advocate Column.

Hearing the doctor say you of a loved one has cancer can be devastating.  Surviving the diagnosis, amazing. Recovery is a long process and preventing relapse is the absolute goal. Having support during this difficult time is priceless.  Your gift of $350 can sponsor a single participant or you can sponsor an entire class for $3,500.  No matter the size of your gift, cancer survivors in Door County benefit from your generosity.
