A healthy lifestyle is important for everyone, but especially for cancer survivors. Healthy behaviors may lower the risk of cancer recurrence and improve survival. And it makes a person feel better in so many ways!
A healthy lifestyle includes: Maintaining a healthy weight, eating a healthy diet, being physically active and not smoking. The YMCA of Greater Louisville offers the Livestrong program for cancer survivors that helps adult cancer survivors achieve their holistic health goals.
