Did you know that HIP has a program for cancer survivors?

It’s called Living Strong Living Well (LSLW)

Over 2,000 people have come through this HIP program that is offered at no cost to recent adult cancer survivors in the community. It’s a twelve-week small-group strength and fitness program that we run in 12 YMCAs from San Francisco to San Jose.

Our goal is to help patients/survivors build muscle mass and strength, and increase flexibility and endurance. Other important goals include reducing the severity of therapy side effects, preventing unwanted weight changes, and improving energy levels, self-esteem, and quality of life.

Did you know that research is now showing that physical activity may actually decrease recurrence and increase survivorship for cancer patients?
