In an attempt to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus during the COVID-19 pandemic, our Medical Programs have changed. Survivors may be referred by their physicians for the Next Steps Program at MercyOne Health and Fitness and receive a scholarship to participate in our Total Training Class and other Medical Programs. Programming at the YMCA has been suspended at this time. Above and Beyond Cancer is offering virtual support with Facebook Live classes for Healing Yoga, Meditation, and Total Training for Cancer Survivors. We offer Zoom meet ups for Nutrition and Cooking Classes, Book Club, The Cancer Education Series, and Watch and Talk Club. Wellness Coaching available through Facetime and in person. Tune into our Above + Beyond Cancer Facebook Page to participate in live events that will promote and support your health during this transition. We are here for you.

People have reported other symptoms, including dizziness, increased dreaming, and headaches. If you experience serious symptoms, please consult your physician.
