Empowering Breast Cancer Survivors Through Dragon Boat Racing

Join Our Community, Take Back Your Life

Awareness And Hope In A Dragon Boat!

“You’ve got breast cancer.”
Those are devastating words that no one 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.

Land Acknowledgement

For many generations, acknowledgement of the land has been a traditional custom of the Indigenous Peoples when welcoming others onto their land. Acknowledging the land is a part of building respectful relationships and is a step towards reconciliation. We acknowledge this land as the traditional land of the First Nations and Metis people of the treaty six region. We are grateful for the opportunity to work, live and play on this land and to utilize the North Saskatchewan, as a means to train, enrich our lives and build relationships with others and with the gifts that we have been given. We respect the languages and cultures of the First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples of Canada, whose presence continues to enrich our lives.
