RE:DRAGON BOAT PROJECT
Dr Don McKenzie, a sports medicine physician ran a study to test the theory that repetitive upper-body exercise in those treated for breast cancer could cause lymphodeema, a chronic swelling of the arm.
Dr McKenzie believed that by following a special exercise and dragon boat training programme, people could avoid lymph-oedema and enjoy active full lives. The initial group was carefully monitored and no new cases of lymph-oedema occurred and none of the existing cases became worse.
It encourage people that have suffered breast cancer to get involved to
– get fit
– enjoy the mutual support of team mates
– raise awareness of breast cancer
There are over 140 breast cancer boat teams in the world.
Please be advised this event is for patients suffering from Breast Cancer only
PLEASE CONTACT THE CENTRE FOR MORE INFORMATION
