YMCA of Greater Syracuse News & Headlines

September 29, 2015


As a charity, the Y relies on contributions from generous individuals and organizations in our community. We'd like to recognize one of our lead sponsors, St. Joseph's Imaging Associates, for their tremendous support for our cancer survivor programs during October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Since 1987, St. Joseph's Imaging Associates has been providing competent, friendly and compassionate radiology services to the community. They use state-of-the-art equipment at all of their eight locations to provide the highest quality diagnostic imaging and interventional radiology services.

St. Joseph's Imaging Associates has been supporting cancer survivor programs at the YMCA of Greater Syracuse since 2013, allowing us to continue providing free services to help people through their diagnosis and treatment.

When people are diagnosed with cancer, they go through a wide range of feelings, including anger, fear, denial, anxiety, depression and sadness. They can have trouble thinking, eating and sleeping, and stress can keep their body from fighting the disease as well as it should. The surgery, chemotherapy and other treatments they might undergo further sap their strength and confidence.

That’s why the Y created our cancer survivor program which includes a 12-week group exercise and support program that’s free for cancer survivors. It includes free Y membership, restorative yoga and free childcare at the Y when participants need to go to medical appointments.

The YMCA of Greater Syracuse is proud to receive sponsorship support from St. Joseph’s Imaging Associates. With their continued help, we’re helping cancer survivors regain the physical, emotional and social strength that a cancer diagnosis can take away.

Thank you St. Joseph’s Imaging Associates!
