Barb was going through chemo for breast cancer. She was given a free membership through the cancer center in hopes that she would gain her strength back. When she first came to the RGS YMCA, she was very self conscious, her hair was just growing back, and she was depressed. She was immediately put at ease, made friends, and gained support. She has gained a lifetime of benefits physically, mentally, and emotionally. Barb goes to Florida i the winter and she exercises there but it doesn’t feel like home. The RGS YMCA is home to her. Insurance covers her membership now, but she would find a way to come even if she had to pay. The benefits far exceed the cost!
