About Us

We are a group of women from Vancouver, Canada and the surrounding metropolitan area, who have had a breast cancer diagnosis. We are a living symbol of hope and a vivid demonstration that there is life after diagnosis. Through the strenuous demands of dragon boat paddling we have learned that we can push the limits of our physical endurance and have fun doing it.
