Bruce C.

Tom Taylor Family YMCA

Bruce Carey was introduced to the Y after completing chemotherapy.

"I had lost 24 pounds and a considerable amount of strength," he explained. Maintaining a regular exercise schedule has enabled him to improve his physical fitness." But what he is most enthusiastic about are the personal connections he has made at the Y.

"The floor staff, Kristi, Mike and Shannon, checked on me daily." Bruce explained. "The front desk staff laugh at my jokes. I've encouraged other people I know to join the Y." 

In fact, the Y has become such an important part of Bruce's life that he brings out-of-town relatives in for a tour.

"I am happier, stronger, and very much appreciate all the wonderful smiling staff members. When I leave the Y for the day, I feel stronger than I did when I walked in."
