My entry for challenge 58.
This will be the last dragonboat pic, I'm sorry got a little obsessed there, I'm just very proud of my mom.

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!
