Cancer Survivor Wellness Program

Power to Survive

If you or someone you know is a cancer survivor, you know that treatment can be tough on the body. There is a full life to be had beyond cancer, and Bassett Healthcare Network wants to help get you back to feeling your best. That is why The Clarks Sports Center and Bassett Healthcare Network have teamed up to create a program designed to help survivors regain their strength after treatment.

Power to Survive is a fitness program at The Clarks Sports Center in Cooperstown designed for cancer survivors who have completed their cancer treatment. The 8-week long program is FREE and focuses on helping survivors regain strength and overall wellness. All cancer survivors who live in our community are welcome to participate regardless of when or where treatment was completed.
