Mission

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide new opportunities for cancer survivors to heal – both physically and emotionally – by being active participants in their own recovery and part of a mutually empowering dragon boat team.

In addition, we are working to raise awareness within the metropolitan Boston survivor and medical professional community of the benefits of paddling for cancer recovery, wellness, and a healthy lifestyle. We accomplish this through education, outreach, and by being an inspirational presence of strong and confident cancer survivors.

 

 

“Dragon boating has helped me make friends with my body again
after the punishing effects of cancer treatment.
The Wellness Warriors have helped me figure out
who I am post treatment.”
