Priscilla Fitzpatrick, founder of Stronger Thru Cancer

Meet Priscilla!

I started Stronger Thru Cancer because people fighting cancer are grossly underserved in the health and wellness community.

I am a cancer survivor and when it comes to exercise, there just aren’t many options specifically geared towards people on this journey. I didn’t feel like going to a gym with “regular’ people. I didn’t want to see people feeling and looking their best when I felt like every day was a struggle. I was worried that I wouldn’t get the care I needed in an exercise class or with a personal trainer. And I certainly didn’t want exposure to germs during active treatment. But I also didn’t want to do it alone.

It has now been years since my last treatment, but I still feel the need for a specific place to rebuild and readjust to a continually changing version of me.

With firsthand experience leading and instructing Livestrong at the YMCA many years later, I saw the benefits of a regular fitness and wellness practice. I saw people supporting each other’s journey! People of all ages and fitness backgrounds; they all made progress and improved their fitness as well as mental attitudes.

But these other programs were limited.

12 weeks doesn’t establish a permanent routine; it’s just a start. And participants would regularly tell me they wished they could continue, that they needed a community to help motivate them, support them, and make them accountable.

And then our lives turned upside down in 2020. We became more isolated and less active. I knew, now more than ever, that my fellow cancer warriors need a safe place, on any day (or every day) to get that community back, to continue to build their health and wellness.

So, I got to work, utilizing my 16 years of experience with cancer and fitness, creating such a program. Combining low intensity at home workouts, done with little or no equipment, and using yoga and mindfulness practices such as journaling, intention setting, and meditation to create a live community where we all share some of the same anxieties, struggles and triumphs. Self-care is not an option, and beating cancer begins with self-care.
