My Y Story...

Stacy Ryan

I am blessed with many things including an amazing husband and family, an abundance of friends, a career I am passionate about, my health and much more! My life changed in October 2013 when I was diagnosed with left tonsil cancer, a complete shock based on my good health status. During the next three months, as I went through care and treatments, I learned a lot and found a way to appreciate life even more. There are a couple things that stand out and one is how everyone at the Y supported my husband and me as we had to deal with our new challenge. Staff and hundreds of members immediately reached out to me asking what they could do to help. My Y family is amazing! I also want people to know how important it is to be in good health. I am not too excited to have a title of “cancer survivor” for the rest of my life, but I plan to turn that into what I like doing best…helping others. Even though the three months of treatments were very rough, there were many things my body responded well to during my recovery, all due to my health status prior to my diagnosis. PLEASE continue to be healthy, or if you are on the fence about making healthier choices…do it NOW! ~Stacy
