The Silver Bay YMCA Conference and Family Retreat Center and Hudson Headwaters Health Network recently agreed to partner to increase the positive community impact each organization has on the Adirondack community.
According to Steve Tamm, chief executive officer of Silver Bay YMCA, the organization is expanding its already successful cancer respite program with their newest partner, Hudson Headwaters.
“Several years ago, Silver Bay launched a community outreach program specifically designed to support patients who are actively being treated for cancer,” said Tamm. “By providing temporary respite to patients and their immediate families at no cost, this program gives these individuals the opportunity to reconnect with their loved ones and enjoy a reprieve from the stresses and financial challenges associated with a battle against cancer. A few wonderful days on the restorative shores of Lake George is one way we try to make a difference.”
