Nearly one in eight of our neighbors will face a breast cancer diagnosis in their lifetime. Earlier detection and improved therapies have increased survival rates, but post-treatment support can still be a challenge for many women. With the Y’s After Breast Cancer (ABC) program, local survivors get the specialized wellness guidance they need on their road to recovery.
The program has been at the Maryland Farms YMCA for eight years, and in that time, nearly 1,000 women in Williamson and Davidson counties have taken part. In 2016, 57 women in 8 groups have gone through the program, with more groups scheduled to start during the remainder of the year. The program is also offered at the Bellevue, Clarksville, Green Hills, Robertson County and Sumner County YMCAs and in the Murfreesboro area in partnership with St. Thomas Rutherford.
