NEVER GIVE UP

Dorie's Story
“I am a Breast Cancer Survivor for 20 years. I had Breast Cancer 3 times and have conquered each occurrence. I Never Give Up!” Being a 3 time cancer survivor, originally diagnosed 20 years ago, Dorie is a poster child for perseverance and a positive attitude. Having struggled with her weight early on and gaining 40 pounds in college, she tried various ways to lose weight, including a program called Diet Control and diet pills. After several cycles of losing weight only to regain it, she found success with Weight Watchers.  Through their supportive environment, she lost the 40 pounds and has kept it off for 33 years!

HELPING OTHERS - JANET'S STORY

Like so many others, Janet’s Y story began when her son, then six years old, was enrolled in swim lessons and summer camp. That is when Janet started participating in group exercise classes as well. As a full time working mother, her discretionary time tended to follow her son’s activities. However Janet also has always believed in giving back and the spirit of volunteerism. She was very active with the Washington School PTA and volunteered with the Boy Scouts of America while her son was on his way to achieving his Eagle Scout Award!
