CNN Report on Breast Cancer Survivors and Dragon Boat Racing

CNN will air a segment on dragon boating and breast cancer this coming Monday, October 6, sometime "mid-morning". It will be part of Judy Fortin's "Health Minute".
CNN was at the Peachtree City Dragon Boat Festival last week-end to interview & film Dragon Boat Atlanta and Jill Binkley, Director of TurningPoint Women's Healthcare about paddling a dragon boat after breast cancer.
If you miss the TV version, you can connect on line to: and watch the video of the show and read an article that Judy is also writing.

Livestrong Army Upstate SC will be racing this Sat., the 11th, at the Upstate Dragon Boat Festival being held at Portman Marina so it is pretty exciting that CNN will actually be touching on the benefits of Dragon Boat racing for breast cancer survivors on this particular week. The Oct. 11th race is a festival and is for anyone who would like to paddle from survivors to caregivers to professionals to raise money for the Cancer Research & Care Center of the Greenville Hospital System Oncology Research Center.
