To be able to talk to someone and know that they understand is huge. LIVESTRONG helped me to realize truly how much opportunity is in front of me.
Eric, testicular cancer survivor
We offer cancer survivors like Eric emotional counseling and guidance on treatment options through our free, one-on-one navigation services. No one should have to go through cancer alone.
I was feeling alone with no support. I just wanted to talk with people who knew what I was going through, and that’s why I reached out to LIVESTRONG.
We provide access to emotional support services to caregivers like Ana because cancer doesn’t affect just the patient— it affects family and friends too. We know you have questions and concerns, and we’re here to give you answers.
We’re living in a health care system that values the numbers of procedures and the complexities of procedures but not taking the perspective of coordinating that care. They’re too focused on the tumor and not focusing enough on the person who just happens to have a tumor.

We’re changing the way the world fights cancer through the LIVESTRONG Cancer Institutes of the Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin by promoting innovative teaching practices, effective research and personalized care.
I went to the cancer center to get treatment, but I came to the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA to heal.
Catherine, cancer survivor
We help cancer survivors regain their strength, energy levels, muscle mass and quality of life through LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, available in over 400 YMCAs across the United States at little to no cost.
We do research to understand what people need, and then we create programs to help them. One of the great things about working on the research program here at LIVESTRONG is the work that we do is immediately translated into people’s lives.
Ruth Rechis, PhD, Vice President of Mission Programs and cancer survivor
The LIVESTRONG Surveys have been informing our work since day one and help us advance our goal to create a world where everyone, no matter what their background is, has access to patient-centered cancer care.
