The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime by providing critical funding for innovative clinical and translational research at leading medical centers worldwide, and increasing awareness about good breast health. LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is a twelve-week, small group program designed for adult cancer survivors. This program fulfills the important need of supporting the increasing number of cancer survivors who find themselves in the transitional period between completing their cancer treatment and the shift to feeling physically and emotionally strong enough to attempt to return to their normal life or their “new normal.” The goal of the program is to help participants build muscle mass and muscle strength, increase flexibility and endurance and improve functional ability. A national program, survivors can participate locally at the Warren YMCA.
