Healthy Living

What does healthy living mean to you? Getting a good sweat going in the gym, reaching that moment of Zen in yoga class, or relaxing at a spa enjoying a great massage? No matter what it means to you, being strong and living well is vital to getting your life back after cancer.  After feeling the effects of chemotherapy, radiation, transplants, and countless surgeries firsthand, our founders understand that after treatment, your body, goals, and needs have changed. Our Healthy Living program is designed to create opportunities for you to start living healthier today!

What to Expect

Healthy Living events are held every 6 to 8 weeks and there are several recurring opportunities throughout the year such as free exercise and yoga classes. Members will be contacted via email and Facebook about upcoming Healthy Living opportunities and events. Information about recurring opportunities for free exercise and yoga classes for Members can be found on our Healthy Living Partnerships.
