The Brandywine YMCA has launched a pilot program for cancer survivors between 10-17 years of age. The 12-week program, which runs Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:30-6 p.m., helps young survivors increase strength and cardiovascular health while improving flexibility and endurance. Participants work with staff trained in supportive cancer care that focuses on the whole person rather than the disease.
The initial cohort was recently completed, and a second will be offered in the spring. Interested participants can get more information or register for the spring group by contacting Terri Borkland at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 510-1176.
