Coping with breast cancer and its treatment can be difficult and the ability to stay mentally strong and healthy is crucial to recover and lead full, active lives.

At Breast Cancer Foundation (BCF), the BCF Paddlers in the Pink (PIP) Dragon Boat Programme is one that involves our breast cancer survivors, as well as the BCF men support group, training on land and at sea to improve their physical and mental well-being. These warriors pick up paddling through BCF and form Singapore's 1st Breast Cancer Survivors Dragon Boat team, where they find strength being on the same boat, racing against the same disease. Women who have undergone breast cancer treatment may suffer from lymphedema (swelling of the arms) and studies have shown that dragon boating can decrease the amount of lymphedema or even prevent it, reduce scarring and rebuild body mass.

Join us in solidarity and support from June to September as we come together to raise funds to fight breast cancer.
