Cancer Survivor Programs

Partners in healing the whole person



Cancer is a life-changing disease that takes a tremendous physical and emotional toll on those affected. It is also the start of your journey as a cancer survivor – a journey that lasts the rest of your life. Our cancer survivor programs are designed to help cancer survivors regain their health and well-being before, during and after cancer treatments.


The La Crosse Area Family YMCA offers two cancer survivor programs to serve two different age populations. Our “A New Direction” program is designed for youth and young adults from ages birth to 30 years old and the LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA program for ages 18+.
