New Program for Cancer Survivors

Natural Awakenings News: Livestrong

To meet the unique fitness and emotional needs of cancer survivors, North Oakland Family YMCA will host a 12-week LIVESTRONG program starting Tuesday, September 17. Twice-weekly meetings will focus on building self-esteem and confidence, endurance and flexibility and muscle strength and mass for 75 to 90 minutes. Physical activities are tailored to individuals’ abilities.

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA staff have been specially trained to work with cancer survivors and patients and follow American College of Sports Medicine and American Cancer Society exercise guidelines. They’re also relationship builders with the empathy and ability to connect with and develop relationships with and among cancer survivors and their families.

The LIVESTRONG Foundation serves people affected by cancer and empowers them to take action against the world’s leading cause of death. Created as the Lance Armstrong Foundation in 1997 by cancer survivor and champion cyclist Lance Armstrong, the Foundation offers additional services and resources for survivors at LIVESTRONG.org.

North Oakland Family YMCA is located at 3378 E. Walton Blvd., Auburn Hills. For more information about the program or to register, call Shelly Battershell at 248-370-9622, x235, or visit ymcadetroit.org/wellness/healthy-lifestyles/livestrong-at-the-ymca/.
