BUILDING A NEW ME


 
 
For years Lois struggled with a myriad of health issues after becoming disabled.  Most recently, Lois was battling the effects of lymphedema simultaneously with breast cancer. 
 
However when Lois’s insurance company shared that she qualified for the Y’s SilverSneakers program, her daily life changed.  Now, thanks to the Y’s aquatic classes and programming tailored to the needs of active older adults, Lois has become stronger, and in her words, “more durable in everyday living situations.” 
 
She is now in remission, has minimized the effects of her lymphedema, and maintains a daily schedule of visiting the Y.  Lois states of her Y journey: “My goal is to attend the Y four days a week, and the comforting staff make it easy to do. The YMCA has put a new view in life for me—day by day I'm building a new me!” 
 
Thanks to the Y’s subsidized community needs programming like SilverSneakers, Lois has found a place to belong, connect with others and thrive. Day in and day out, the Y provides service solutions meeting key social needs.  Thanks to our staff, volunteers and community supporters, we provide opportunities for all neighbors to build a brighter future, side by side.

Financial assistance awards are assessed on a case by case basis during a one-on-one, confidential session with a staff member.
