We just heard about a great YMCA program for cancer survivors.  From their website:

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA addresses the increasing number of cancer survivors who find themselves in the transitional period between completing their cancer treatment and feeling physically and emotionally strong enough to attempt to return to a normal life or the "new normal."

Cancer survivors includes those from diagnosis through remission.

This 12-week program is designed for adult cancer survivors to meet twice a week for an hour and 30 minutes. YMCA wellness coaches work with each participant to fit the program to her/his individual needs. Our instructors are trained in the elements of cancer, post rehab exercise and supportive cancer care.  

Find out more information on their website or contact Nancy Gildersleeve, Director of Healthy Living for the Capital District YMCA at ngildersleeve@cdymca.org or call 518.869.3500 x 9928.
