Paddling for the Machestic Dragons has been one of my most rewarding experiences as a breast cancer survivor. I was never an athlete but was looking for some way to exercise and have fun in the process and dragon boating covers that and more. I was welcomed with open arms by one of the most wonderful groups of women (and men) that I have ever met. I was less than a year out of treatment when I joined and I never felt better. Being among my comrades, whether out on the lake or indoor at the paddle pool is very therapeutic physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I look forward many more years as a member of the Machestic Dragons.
