You make time for the things that matter. I am extremely excited to take on a new venture this year. Beginning this fall I will start working with the incredibly caring and talented staff at The Community YMCA of Eastern Delaware County and their LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program. This is a research based physical activity and well-being program designed to help cancer survivors achieve their holistic health goals. Participants work with YMCA staff trained in supportive cancer care to safely achieve their goals such as (re) building muscle mass and strength, increasing flexibility and endurance, and improving confidence and self-esteem.

livestrong YMCA 1I have been a member of the Community YMCA for 20 plus years and served on the Board of Directors for about 7 years. And while I have supported and assisted the LIVESTRONG program a little in the past, I am very psyched to be taking on an expanded and more active role with our members. This is an outstanding organization that I have always been proud of associating myself with and I’m very much looking forward to this next chapter. This is also yet another example of a gift or an opportunity that has come as a result of my own diagnosis. I do know a thing or two about this subject matter, but had I never been diagnosed, I doubt I ever would have made the connection and decision to get involved with LIVESTRONG.
