Thanks to our donors, all of these programs are offered at NO COST to cancer survivors.

This 12-week exercise and group support program focuses on improving the survivor’s strength, fitness, and quality of life. In addition to physical benefits, the program also focuses on the emotional well-being of survivors and their families. It provides a supportive community where people impacted by cancer can connect during treatment and beyond.

Laurie’s Hope
Laurie’s Hope, a program supported by the Saint Agatha Foundation, helps breast cancer survivors thrive by maintaining physical fitness and strength; improving their diets; and helping them make connections with other breast cancer survivors. With a strong emphasis on improved social support, interventions are individually designed to strengthen survivors’ support networks, both inside and outside of the YMCA.

The Kaye Center for Cancer Wellness
The Kaye Center for Cancer Wellness, located in our new Northwest Family YMCA, is designed to meet the specific needs of men and women battling cancer by offering them a comfortable environment to socialize, exercise, and recharge. It includes a reading area, a small waterfall, a gathering space, a small exercise area, a balcony and a meditation room. One of the first such spaces of its kind, it is becoming a model among YMCAs nationally.

Prime Time Plus 
We offer our child care support service to participants in our cancer survivor programs who need childcare to attend appointments or treatment. Participants can bring their children to the Northwest, North Area and East Area YMCA to enjoy activities free of charge. Registration is required.
