Five Derby City Dragons went to Sarasota to paddle in the International Breast Cancer Dragonboat Festival with the Ky Through-Breasts in October 2014. They are (left to right) Debbie R., Carol C., Phyllis L., Georgianna D. and Suzanne C.
Here’s what they are saying about this opportunity:
“i joined the Derby City Dragons when the group started in 2013 to get a little exercise and spend some time on the river with my pink sisters, never dreaming that before long I would be traveling to Sarasota to compete in an International Dragonboat festival. I feel so blessed to be a part of this wonderful team and show other survivors that life doesn’t end after a cancer diagnosis.”
I joined the DCD because I wanted to be in a group that doesn’t focus on my cancer, but focuses on recovery. It’s also great to be able to show other women diagnosed with this awful disease that they can have a full life and be active while battling cancer and after. We feel stronger because of this team!
