World Class Cyclist and Cancer Survivor Speaks of the Importance of Exercise in Cancer Recovery
CLEARWATER - We’re not saying Anna Schwartz would have beaten Lance Armstrong, but during her cycling career, she would have given him a run for his money. And as a survivor of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, she has an equally compelling and inspiring survivor’s story.
Join the YMCA of the Suncoast and Northern Trust for a presentation by Anna Schwartz, covering her career, and the subject of Cancer Survivors and Exercise on Thursday, September 25, at 6 p.m., at First Baptist Church of Indian Rocks, 12685 Ulmerton Rd, Largo. Admission is $10 per person and includes dinner. Reservations may be paid for at any YMCA of the Suncoast Branch or online at www.ymcasuncoast.org.
As a leading expert on the benefits of exercise for cancer survivors, Anna now works closely with the Lance Armstrong Foundation and the YMCA creating exercise options for individuals affected by the disease. She is a best selling author of the book Cancer Fitness: Exercise Programs for Patients and Survivors and currently works as a research professor at Arizona State University.
