My Y Story...

Derby Family

Our family came to the YMCA through #maks, a special program designed for children who are cancer survivors. #maks stands for Making Amazing Kids Stronger. The wonderful part about this program is that it offers opportunities for the entire family. Since Norah has been out of treatment, our family has been searching for ways to encourage total health for her. We want her to grow up having a strong heart, strong mind and a strong spirit. Through #maks, Norah learned to make healthy snacks, try yoga and Zumba, make a dream board, dance, laugh, share and bond with other children who are also cancer survivors. Her brother, Owen, was also offered many special experiences in the “super sibs” group. This has been a very positive experience for our entire family and we will continue making healthy life choices. We are so thrilled to be able surround our children with the wonderful staff at the YMCA. They are teaching them about helping others, being positive, living strong and giving back. That is total health. We have been blessed. - Derby Family
