Living Strong Living Well (LSLW) is a twelve-week small-group strength and fitness training program designed for adult cancer survivors who have recently become de-conditioned or chronically fatigued from their treatment and/or disease. Our goal is to help patients build muscle mass and muscle strength, increase flexibility and endurance; and improve functional ability and quality of life. This program is available at no cost to participants and is not a source of revenue to Stanford or the YMCA.

Testimonials

After a second major surgery in four months I was so weak I could hardly get out of bed. I found the brochure for Living Strong Living Well program in my radiologist's office and wanted to come. Exercise had been an important part of my life. When I called the program to see if I could come when I felt strong enough, they urged me to come right away.... The encouragement of the LSLW staff, the commitment to come twice a week, and the company of other class members made a big difference in my morale and my progress toward health.
