Melissa came into the LIVESTRONG at the Y program with expectations of feeling better through exercise and to connect with other cancer survivors.

She has embraced the exercise and has had some self discovery of her capacity to feel better through exercise and has increased her strength and endurance.

She’s open to try new things and when we try something new, Melissa works real hard!

She’s also an encouragement to her fellow LIVESTRONG at the Y participants with her determined and positive attitude.


We’ve enjoyed having her in our pilot program and she has mentioned interest in becoming a volunteer trainer in the future!
