We recently received this message from a YMCA Member via Instagram regarding their particpation in the LIVESTRONG Program for Cancer Survivors at the McGrath and John A. Davis Family YMCAs.
" I chose to join the YMCA because i am currently recovering from cancer and chemotherapy. The McGrath Family YMCA was about to pilot the LiveStrong Cancer Survivorship Program at the time. Even though i didn't end up being able to do the program this time around, i love the communal and vibrant energy of the Y. It seemed like a great place to get reconnected with my body and rebuild after 600 hours of chemotherapy! Yes, 600! It has proven to be a place where i feel comfortable to exercise as much or as little as i want to/can without feeling judged."
