Tom Taylor Family YMCA
In 2013, Kristi Tilson was shocked to learn she had breast cancer. A YMCA member since 2009, Kristi participated regularly in cycling, water aerobics, and yoga classes and felt she was in optimal health.
That's when a Y staff encouraged her to join the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program, a support group for cancer survivors and patients.
"Livestrong was so good for me," said Kristi. "It gave me the motivation I needed to come to the Y, exercise a little, and find the support of others experiencing the same thing."
