Participants are now more than halfway through with their twelve week program at the Carolinas Cancer Wellness Program. While everyone’s goals are different, the staff at the program work hard to make sure everyone can take home measurable, helpful results. For some participants that may mean an increase in strength while for others it means being able to more easily transfer from a sitting to a standing position.
The next step for Susan and other participants is transferring the program downstairs. Amy, the exercise physiologist will work with survivors to be comfortable on the equipment in the larger gym so they can continue using the Y after they complete the 12 week course.
