Target demographics: Women with any type of cancer in any stage (diagnosis through treatment, recovery, and beyond recovery), at any age and any level of fitness - welcome!

Direct beneficiaries per year: 500+

Geographic areas served: Los Angeles County

Programs: Team Survivor California offers classes and programs in Los Angeles County. Our weekly bilingual (Spanish/English) yoga classes at the County Hospital in Sylmar give low-income women with cancer an opportunity to participate in gentle exercise while awaiting treatment. In addition, we host educational seminars, which are open to the public and cover topics such as nutrition, athletic training and goal setting, and stress management. Our participants range in age from early 30s to over 80 and are in all stages of cancer treatment and recovery.

Mission:
Recent research has proven the benefits of exercise for people who are undergoing or have undergone cancer treatment. Team Survivor aims to make regular exercise a fun, convenient and supportive experience for all women affected by cancer. Our group exercise programs are designed to accommodate women of all fitness and experience levels - some of our participants are exercising for the first time in their life, others are longtime athletes working to regain their strength following their cancer treatment. All of our participants support one another in their healing journeys.
