Dragon boat team seeking paddlers

Dragon boat racing started as a therapeutic sport for breast cancer patients, but it has evolved into so much more, says Maureen Hayden-Wing.

A member of A Breast or Knot, a dragon boat team of paddlers who have or had breast cancer, she says the fellowship and activity was a great tonic to her.

“When I got breast cancer, I had never been sick before,” she says. “I found I was much better off getting my mind off it.”
