Breast Friends Sponsorship
June 21 2022
“You’ve got breast cancer.”
Those are devastating words that no woman wants to hear. While surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and hormone therapy are effective treatments for fighting cancer, they will sap your energy. You may miss work and face financial challenges. Social isolation and fear can affect your mental health. It can feel as if cancer has stolen your physical and emotional well-being.
Breast Friends helps breast cancer survivors take back that power.
We are people from Edmonton and surrounding communities, from every walk of life, and with varied fitness levels. We are all breast cancer survivors. Each member of our team proves that life can be full, vigorous and filled with joy after a diagnosis of breast cancer.
Their motto is, Awareness and Hope in a Dragon Boat!
Breast Friends’ mission:
- To encourage those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer to lead full and active lives
- To demonstrate the benefits of an active lifestyle through the sport of dragon boating
- To raise awareness about breast cancer and encourage the pursuit of a cure
- To provide support and fellowship to team members
- To have fun!
