ShaneForbisterShane passed away in February 1999.

We knew Shane for such a short time. She learned of Abreast In A Boat from a social worker while attending her cancer treatments in Burnaby.

After her treatments Shane started her own exercise program to get herself ready to join the team. She paddled successfully in two festivals with the Best Abreast crew in 1998. Shane enjoyed meeting all the other women and being in the same boat—literally. Unfortunately her cancer returned and she was unable to continue paddling.

Her team mates will always remember her happiness and laughter.
