Our original Patient and Caregiver Grant is designed for the patient undergoing treatments and the caregiver providing support. Seas It assists in the coordination of and provides financial assistance for recreational activities geared toward mental and physical recovery.

Examples include but are not limited to: biking, tennis, skiing, knitting, surfing, art lessons, karate classes, fishing, piano, theater, pottery, yoga, golf, hiking, and team soccer.

Between my treatments and pregnancy, the Y has been my husband’s retreat to work out stress. I had some physical problems during my pregnancy that made walking difficult, and the stationary bikes helped keep me mobile toward the end. This membership has been a tremendous gift.
