Patricia C.

Mel Korum Family YMCA

Patricia and her granddaughter, Michelle, joined the Mel Korum Family YMCA for different reasons. Patricia, a two-time cancer survivor, set out to gain strength and make a lasting change for herself. Her granddaughter, Michelle, hoped to live a healthier lifestyle.

“I am proud to say we have both accomplished our goals,” said Patricia.

Patricia has been cancer-free for the last two years and has been able to walk longer and farther because of the strength she has gained at the Y. Michelle has lost an outstanding 60 pounds and actively lives a healthier lifestyle because of the tips she learned at the Y.

“Being members of the YMCA has given us both confidence in ourselves that we can do it and so can others!” said Patricia.
