My Y Story...

Julie

My first membership to the Y was about 30 years ago. I used to take the city bus to the Downtown Y to go swimming. It was at that time that I first got the vision of becoming a lifeguard. Through the years I have always swam at the Y. Being that I had always been active, I didn’t really watch what I was eating and eventually ended up over weight with diabetes, asthma and high blood pressure. On February 14, 2012, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had several surgeries and radiation treatments. Because of the healing process, I wasn’t allowed to go swimming. I had taken going to the Y for granted. When I was done healing from the surgeries, I continued with my swimming. Many times while swimming I would see the life guard classes being taught and remembered my vision of becoming a lifeguard. I took the class and became certified 10 months after my last radiation treatment and become a YMCA lifeguard 4 months later. I have lost 122 pounds and no longer take medication for my diabetes or asthma and only need half of my high blood pressure medications. During the cancer treatments, the Y was a very important part of my recovery. The staff were always supportive and were able to find something I could do given the limitations that I had. I always felt the staff was my own personal cheerleaders. ~Julie
