Stuart C Gildred Family YMCA offering LIVESTRONG program for cancer survivors

LIVESTRONG, a free 12-week program for adult cancer survivors, is available at the Stuart C. Gildred Family YMCA in Santa Ynez.

The Stuart C. Gildred Family YMCA will offer a free, 12-week LIVESTRONG wellness program from Sept. 1 to Nov. 22. 

The program is geared toward adult cancer survivors and focuses on treating the whole person, not just the disease. Such an approach helps participants move beyond cancer in mind, body and spirit, according to a program spokeswoman.

Trained wellness coaches will work with each participant as they transition from cancer treatment to regaining their physical and emotional strength.

Participants will receive a three-month membership and will participate in a two-day-per-week, instructor-led class.

For more information, contact Kathryn Thompson, regional wellness director, at 805-686-2037, or email Kathryn.Thompson@ciymca.org.
