Thank you for your generous support!
This year's fundraiser was a huge success. Together we raised over $2000 and helped a lot of people toward healing. I am eternally grateful for your support. Stay tuned for my second fundraiser in 2019!
After Breast Cancer (ABC) is a program for survivors by survivors that provides education and healing for body, mind and spirit after a breast cancer diagnosis.
Participants learn about healthy eating, resume or begin a regular exercise program that is right for them and form a healing community in small group discussions led by a trained facilitator.
Most participants find they receive the most benefit from ABC if they join after completing treatment and all surgeries. However, our certified therapists and personal trainers can also help participants regain range of motion immediately after surgery, as well as provide lymphedema education and screening.
ABC is completely free of charge, and funded by grants, private donations and generous corporate and community sponsors.
Proceeds benefit the Maryland Farms YMCA Annual Campaign and ABC Program which provides comprehensive exercise, nutrition and wellness services free of charge to breast cancer patients and survivors. During the 16-week program, participants receive lymphedema education and screening, exercise in a group among other survivors with a Pink Ribbon®-certified personal trainer, meetings with a registered dietitian, attend small groups for emotional support, and have free use of the YMCA facilities and group fitness classes.
The 16-week ABC program is free to survivors thanks to our generous donors. If you'd like to pay it forward to more women, the cost per woman is $750.
I hope you will consider purchasing a CD or download.
