Exercise is the number one thing a breast cancer patient can do to ease the negative effects of treatments, medications, and the emotional stress that accompanies this frightening diagnosis.

Fitness & Wellness Program

Fitness Classes

We offer a weekly fitness program that has been specifically customized to meet the physical needs of women who have had a breast cancer diagnosis at some point in their lives. We welcome not only newly diagnosed women but longtime survivors and women who have metastatic disease. From the day of diagnosis and for the rest of their lives, women are encouraged to participate in our unique and extremely therapeutic program. All fitness levels are accommodated.

Our fitness offerings are open to breast cancer patients and survivors and support people.

For more information about our current fitness offerings, please email Betsy at ebell@ywcaprinceton.org

Healing Arts Program

The BCRC is here to empower breast cancer patients and survivors to take an active role in maintaining and improving their quality of life during and after breast cancer treatment.  We know all too well how a diagnosis of breast cancer stirs up so many emotions.  It is important to have an outlet for these emotions – a way to acknowledge, explore and express them in a positive way.

We find that engaging in creative arts can be a powerful healing experience for breast cancer survivors facing health challenges. Healing arts helps in so many ways including expressing thoughts and emotions, lowering stress and anxiety, connecting with oneself in a deeper way, coping with grief, and creating something unique and beautiful!

BCRC healing arts workshops include painting, drawing, sculpting, equine therapy, creative writing, and more. To find out more about upcoming healing arts workshops, please contact Melissa White-McMahon at (609) 497-2100 x 349 or mwhite@ywcaprinceton.org
