“The socializing was a big part of it for me,” Williams said. “It was comforting to meet people who are in the same situation, or similar. The cancers can be different, but many of the challenges are the same.”
The classes meet two days a week. One day is typically devoted to cardio, and the second day is devoted to specific workouts, guest speakers and field trips. The classes have helped Williams' recovery. She continued going to the YMCA after her class ended last month.
“I have more flexibility, and I can get around a little more,” Williams said. “It's a long process, but it was a great way to start it.”
