Journey Program Member workout

83-year-old pumps iron to put cancer in its place

(WPBN/WGTU) — Beverly Christensen is a workout warrior. You’re likely to find her and her trainers stretching, sweating and getting stronger, even if it’s not necessarily her first choice.

As Beverly puts it “It’s a love hate situation. I love how it comes out, I don’t particularly like doing it, but I know it’s good for me.” At 83-years-old, hitting the gym isn’t supposed to be easy but it’s made even more challenging for her because a year ago Beverly started her battle against pancreatic cancer.

It was a serious diagnosis and so along with chemo and surgery, Beverly started working out as part of the Journey Program. It’s an exercise class geared specifically towards those dealing with cancer.
