Strength for Life, a 501c 3 charitable organization providing free exercise classes to cancer patients/ survivors. We offer strength-training using resistance bands and stability balls (free) and speak at support groups throughout Long Island educating the public. Strength for Life understands the burden of astronomical co-pays so our goal is to make the process of regaining strength as simple as possible, with no cost to participants.Strength for Life was formed in memory of Evelyn Knapp, an exercise physiologist who lost her battle with breast cancer at 40 years old in 2005. Our Wellness Weekend, held at a local hotel with accommodations and meals provided, introduces a variety of exercise modalities and provides guest speakers on related subjects. We have seen tears; “aha” moments, as well as wonderful support and camaraderie taking place. Yoga, Tai Chi, Reiki and our strength-training class offer these individuals choices in regaining a life of wellness and fitness.
