An Entertaining and Ambitious Weekend:

The Conference is the first part of an entertaining and ambitious weekend programme which also includes a gala dinner on Saturday evening and the 2nd. Dragon Boat Charity Regatta on Lake Windermere on Sunday 13th September.

Paddlers for Life UK is a charity formed to promote breast cancer survivor dragon boat paddling in the UK by developing a network of dragon boat teams.

Louisa Balderson and Sue Cogley are founder members of the Paddlers for Life Windermere breast cancer survivor dragon boat team which has paddled on Windermere since 2008.

Sue and Louisa work tirelessly to promote cancer survivor dragon boat paddling. Through their UK charity they aim to widen access to the benefits of paddling by aiding the creation and development of new teams across the UK.

Exercise promotes recovery after treatment for a cancer diagnosis.
Research suggests regular exercise also may help prevent recurrence of cancer for people in remission.

Dragon boat paddling particularly includes upper body exercise which has been shown to reduce or limit lymphodema which may arise from surgery.
Breast cancer surgery often includes removal of cancerous lymph nodes under the arm which normally drain the lymphatic system.
This can lead to the build up of fluids in the tissues of the arms which leads to uncomfortable swelling and possibly tissue infection.
