Turning Point Program

The Turning Point Program is targeted to help breast cancer survivors once they have been diagnosed and throughout their lives to improve their emotional, physical and overall quality of life.  Our goal is to help reduce the side effects of cancer treatment and aid in prevention of recurrence.

-Each participant is evaluated on a one-to-one basis, creating an individualized program.

-The program consists of fitness, aqua and yoga classes that are closely monitored in a group setting by certified staff trained to work with cancer survivors.

-Expect to receive support and relationship building with fellow survivors and an overall life-changing experience.

The Jackson YMCA Turning Point Program offers a free 1-year membership to breast cancer survivors within 5 years of diagnosis.  Participants must attend a minimum of 4 classes per month to stay eligible to receive a free membership.  Those receiving a free membership are allowed full access to both branches, use of cardio and strength equipment, pools, saunas, steam rooms, other group exercise classes, gyms and other membership services.

Anyone with a breast cancer diagnosis, regardless of how long it has been, is welcome to attend our Turning Point classes for free.  Participants must register at the front desk prior to attending and also meet with our Turning Point Coordinator.
