The Cancer Support Community Valley/Ventura/Santa Barbara has teamed up with Joe & Clara Pilates Inspired Health Club to offer Pink Pilates – a six-week program designed especially for breast cancer survivors recovering from treatment. The best part? It's absolutely free.

"What I loved most was how thorough they are," says Margie Stewart, a breast cancer survivor and Pink Pilates participant. "The instructors are so kind and thoughtful about our circumstances. I've never had anybody break it down so clearly. And they are conscientious about keeping the studio clean…the place is immaculate."

Margie, who is in remission, says she wouldn't have been able to afford to pay out of pocket for pilates classes. Through Pink Pilates, she has learned techniques she can use at home to continue her recovery from cancer treatment. "I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to take pilates in this particular place," says Margie. "They care…you can tell they care."

Thank you, Joe & Clara Pilates, for helping us make a difference in the lives of cancer survivors! And thanks to the Ventura County Star for this article featuring Pink Pilates.
