The Brooks Family YMCA is proud to serve as a site for LIVE STRONG at the YMCA.

Cancer is a life-changing disease that takes a tremendous physical and emotional toll on those affected. The Y and LIVESTRONG have joined together to create LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, an evidence-based physical activity and well-being program designed to help adult cancer survivors reclaim their total health.

Participants work with Y staff trained in supportive cancer care to safely achieve their goals such as building muscle mass and strength, increasing flexibility and endurance, and improving confidence and self-esteem. By focusing on the whole person and not the disease, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is helping people move beyond cancer in spirit, mind, and body.

Through a generous donation from the UVA Cancer Center, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is fully subsidized for cancer survivors. As a survivor, whether you are recently diagnosed or 15 years post-treatment, you can participate in this program at no cost to you and receive a YMCA membership for the 12-week duration of the program.
