Our survivorship programs are all-inclusive, so we invite everyone from newly diagnosed cancer patients to those anywhere in their cancer journey, as well as their supporters, caregivers, and the community to participate.

Patients and physicians know that strengthening one’s mind, body and spirit plays an essential role in cancer treatment. Our survivorship program offers a wide variety of evidence-based programs. The programs are led by certified instructors, and they include gentle yoga, aquatics, small group personal training, Tai Chi, individual coaching, and meditation.

All cancer programs and classes are free to YWCA members. Cancer patients and survivors may receive a 12-week YWCA scholarship after a Doctor referral. For more information, call 563-249-0077 or email health@ywcaclinton.org. Medical referrals can be faxed to 515-635-1286
