Y Stories:LiveSTRONG at the YMCA

Rachel's Journey

LiveSTRONG at the YMCA is a program for adults living with or beyond cancer treatment. Rachel was one of the participants in our first session. After her experience in the program, this is what she wants others to know:

  • “Don’t be afraid to do this program, even if you have some limitations. The positivity you get from seeing the progress you make, the encouragement and understanding you get from the instructors, make you feel and say ‘I can do this’. I never thought I could use machines at a gym but I CAN and I feel very comfortable doing it. I’m very thankful!”
