    INDIVIDUALS who receive a cancer diagnosis will forever view themselves, and the world in which they live, in a different way. But the core of who they are — their personalities and the ways in which they communicate — is still intact. More than ever, they will need to know that they can count on the love, understanding and support of their families and close friends.

    A cancer diagnosis, however, often changes the ways in which we communicate with our loved ones. Whether we’re scared, feeling awkward, or don’t know what to say, we are often worried we will say the wrong thing. How we communicate with loved ones, family members, acquaintances or even strangers who are living with cancer, is an important way to show love and support. Supporting someone with cancer requires paying attention to what that individual wants and needs, and knowing what to do and what not to do. click for more

  • Masters Swim Program

    Looking for a no-impact, refreshing way to get fit? Consider the Masters Swim Program available through the Family YMCA of the Desert at the new Palm Desert Aquatic Center. Attracting both seasoned and recreational swimmers, the YMCA’s Masters Swim Program is designed to get people in the water for a well planned workout, and to have fun while doing it — in water that is a temperate 81 degrees. “Most people come to the class for fitness and for the social aspect of enjoying each other’s company while conditioning,” says Head Coach Robert (Bob) Krom. “We don’t put any pressure on anyone here. Swimmers can stay as long as they’re able during the one and a half hour class time.” Swimming competitively in high school, Krom began to coach swimming in 1994 while his children were in school. He was the head coach for High Desert Aquatics from 1996 to 2007. Most recently, he was the head coach and CEO for the Temple Areas Swim Club in Texas. Krom’s expertise includes strength and... click for more
