“When I started the LiveStrong at the YMCA program, I had been through the wars with Breast Cancer,” shared Coraleen Littlejohn (pictured with Jay Jackson). “After the surgeries and the chemotherapy, I wasn’t sure I could physically do anything. Jay Jackson helped give me my life back.”
A couple of years ago, YMCA member Doug Austin, asked YMCA staff to find him a family that needed help so he could buy a full Thanksgiving meal. This past Thanksgiving, it turned into 8 families. Doug didn’t want anyone to know, he just wanted to know that he was helping families that truly needed help.
