The full Hope Afloat team (well a full boat of them at least) at the National Dragonboat competition in Tampa, Florida.

The development of breast cancer dragonboat teams was started by a canadian doctor in 1995 who challenged the general opinion that after a mastectomy or lumpectomy, women should avoid any upper body exercises. He thought upper body exercise would help his patients after surgery, and started the first dragonboat team for breast cancer survivors. Now women who have had had breast cancer have a new form of support group and exercise plan all rolled into one!
