Soon a new YWCA ENCORE breast cancer exercise and wellness program will kick off in Lismore. Funded by NSW Health, ENCORE is a free, award-winning exercise and wellness program designed by healthcare professionals specifically for women who have experienced breast cancer or preventative surgery.
The program aims to restore mobility, flexibility and confidence through gentle exercises.
Support and connection with others plays an important role in adjusting to life following a cancer diagnosis, and ENCORE provides the opportunity to connect with others who share a similar experience. Having fun is also an essential element of the program!
Women who have been through the journey of breast cancer at any time in their lives are welcome to register to attend the program. You don’t need to be able to swim to participate.
