Today I stopped by the YWCA Encore program at the Ottawa Street YWCA. This is a FREE 'after breast cancer' exersice program. It is designed for women who have had a mastectomy, lumpectomy or reconstruction and focuses on floor and pool exercises.
It is much more then just an exercise class - thanks to the great ladies who lead the program! They create a warm and caring enviroment where women come together in all different stages of their breast cancer experience and can share their stories, laugh and cry and learn more about nutrition and other health related and well-being topics of interest. (I know this first hand as I am an Encore graduate!)
Today I was able to be a guest speaker and shared with the ladies my own 'Lemons to Lemonade' experience.
Special thanks to Anne Marie for inviting me and the attendees for listening! Hope I was able to help you make some sweet lemonade!
