Moving Forward

Posted 02/21/2017

While medical science, training and technology have led to major break-throughs in cancer care and treatment, those in recovery often face physical and emotional challenges as they look to regain a sense of normalcy. 

Enter The Granite YMCA’s LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program. 

First offered in 2014, the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program helps cancer survivors regain their health through a free 12-week program. The evidenced-based program combines supervised exercise, nutritional counseling and emotional support to help participants in their return to daily activities of life, work and school. To date, The Granite YMCA has served over 140 participants.

“We’ve been pleased to offer this free program at our branches in Goffstown, Londonderry and Manchester over the past three years,” said Cindy Lafond, Director of the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program at The Granite YMCA. “And now we’re pleased to expand the program to offer classes at the YMCA of the Seacoast in Portsmouth and the YMCA of Strafford County in Rochester.”

The foundation for the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program was laid in the fall of 2014, thanks to a major grant from the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation. Anthem recently renewed its commitment to the effort and now has provided $100,000 in charitable support for this innovative program.

“During our three-year collaboration with the YMCA, I have been struck by the inspiring stories of the people who have participated in this program and the difference it has made in their lives,” said Lisa Guertin, President of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. “That’s why we are proud to be a substantial sponsor of this program, and pleased to renew our support of the tremendous work that is done at the YMCA every day.”

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is part of a national partnership between YUSA and the LIVESTRONG foundation. Now celebrating its 10th year, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA is offered by 204 YMCA associations across the U.S. In all, the program serves 516 communities in 39 states and to date, has served more than 38,000 cancer survivors.

Ms. Lafond notes that the program combines several elements of wellness activities enabling participants at varying levels to go through the program together.  “And the bonding experience is an important one,” she added.  “Along with the exercise and educational sessions themselves, going through the process with people who are in the similar situation is an important support system for participants.”

In addition to the structured 12-week program, trained instructors at The Granite YMCA provide support and guidance to help survivors maintain a healthy routine. “We’re strongly committed to helping survivors and their families through the entire process,” added Ms. Lafond.

For more information about upcoming session offerings of the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program at the YMCA of the Seacoast and the YMCA of Strafford County, please contact Ms. Lafond at (603) 232-8650 or via email at clafond@graniteymca.org
