The power of friendship -- Christie Wise was beating her breast cancer, but the journey was taking its toll. Arthritis and lingering pain from treatment kept her out of her beautiful flower gardens and brought her enjoyable walks to a halt.

Cancer rehab programs also were rare (still are) -- but just tell that to Johnston, the Monroe County YMCA and the community funders who brought Working out to Increase Strength and Endurance (WISE) to Bloomington and to the cancer patients and survivors who benefit from it.
