We know that health and well-being are all about balance. That’s why we give people of all ages and interests a supportive environment to build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body in their everyday lives.
Gloria regained her strength through LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA after battling cancer three times. “In 2006, I was diagnosed with cancer. I went through surgery to have the cancer removed, but it came back two more times. I couldn’t believe it; I was mad,” she said. Gloria continued her treatments and in 2009 the cancer was in remission. While the cancer appeared to be gone, so was her energy. A family friend suggested Gloria go to the Y. That’s where she discovered LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA. Gloria went from being able to lift just 45 pounds to lifting 145 pounds. “This is the best program out there. Without it, I’d still be in my cocoon, a couch potato and wishing I was stronger. Now, I can walk the walk. I tell other cancer survivors that they need to join this program. It gives people hope.”
