Special to

The Statesville Family YMCA will start its fall LIVE STRONG  at the YMCA sessions on Tuesday, September 24. Classes run every Tuesday and Thursday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. for 12 weeks.

LIVE STRONG at the YMCA is a free, small group program designed for adult cancer survivors who are post-treatment up to five years. This program fulfills the important need of supporting the increasing number of cancer survivors who find themselves in the transitional period between completing their cancer treatment and the shift to feeling physically and emotionally strong enough to attempt to return to their normal life — or “new normal.”

The program is of no cost to participants and includes a free Y membership for the duration of the session. Iredell Health System is one of our community partners, which also includes Forsyth Medical Center, Wake Forest Baptist Medical, Wilkes Regional Medical Center, Piedmont Hematology and Oncology, and Cancer Services.


If you are a cancer survivor and would like more information, contact Deborah Schneble at (704) 873-9622, Ext. 6714, or via email at
