The “Yoga 500” will take place at the Grand Haven Community Center, 421 Columbus Ave., from 2-5 p.m.

Fenton, owner of Lakeshore Yoga Center in Grand Haven, was diagnosed in 2010 with stage 3 breast cancer. She continues her healing journey, recently having a major reconstructive surgery and undergoing monthly treatments.

Carlson, an instructor at the yoga center, has been in treatment for breast cancer twice.

Both women will lead the class participants through yoga poses specifically recommended for relaxation, opening the body and uplifting the spirit — sprinkled in with a bit of laughter and a few tears. 

The suggested donation is $20. All proceeds will benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation.

Sorry about that. The day is corrected on the story.

This is nice! Indeed, our health is important. Having a good health makes us to move freely and do the things that we want without any hassle.

Recently, Susan G. Komen for the Cure has contributed much in the battle against breast and cervical cancer, but the company's recent conclusion to pull its financing of Planned Parenthood has drawn critical fire. Susan G. Komen CEO Nancy Brinker insists that the media's depiction of events has been “a gross mischaracterization.” Article source: Susan Komen attempts to deflect heat from Planned Parenthood decision
