Dragon Divas Paddle to Win Over Breast Cancer

When I was doing my internship at the Minnesota Public Radio, I worked on a video story of a group of breast cancer survivors who compete dragon boat racing in the Twin Cities area. Each one of they had to go through a journey of breast cancer treatment, but they were so energetic, joyful and optimistic.

This is a story of the amazing Dragon Divas ladies.

Two teams of Twin Cities dragon boat racers — named Courage and Hope — are made up from the Dragon Divas, a support group of breast cancer survivors. The Divas head to Sarasota, Fla., this weekend to compete in the International Breast Cancer Paddler’s Commission. But it’s not the competition that brought them together.
