Reaching for Life Book
To order our book: "Reaching for Life" (Breast Cancer Survivors & the Sport of Dragon Boat Racing): Dynamic Dragon Boat Racing LLC, PO Box 5659, Knoxville, Tn 37933 Cost is $25 (comes with a pink back tote with race dragon boats logo while supplies last) & proceeds will benefit breast cancer dragon boating all over the US. My chapter is "Reaching for Recovery" & I share my story of battling 2 stage 4 cancers & my love & work with The Lance Armstrong Foundation. I hope you will get your copy & be blessed.
NOTE: Circumstances have changed since my contribution to this work. After founding a dragon boat program and captain/coaching a group of bc survivors in Anderson, SC & raising funds in order to purchase a Swift Dragon Boat, I ( Livestrong Upstate Representative) turned (donated) the local program over to Anderson's local cancer association. Livestrong Upstate, as the Grassroots Organization of The Lance Armstrong Foundation, has formed mixed dragon boat teams and participated in several festivals since "08 (Charleston, Atlanta, Upstate, Tennessee & Canada) and we will continue forming teams for various festivals throughout the US and Canada. (maybe even across the pond, one day...gonna dream, dream BIG!). If you are in the Upstate of SC and have interest in "Paddling Strong", contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
You do not have to be a breast cancer survivor to participate in future db festivals with the Livestrong Upstate Dragon Boat Team. Survivors of any cancer, supporters/caregivers and professionals in the field are welcome.
