After a sudden rise to fame on social media, the dragon boat team in Kunming City, Yunnan, which is purely composed of breast cancer survivors, provides an opportunity for the public to know about their little-known life after breast cancer operations.
Breast cancer survivors in China are restoring their health by paddling dragon boats and gaining confidence.
The organizer of the dragon boat team is the Kunming Cancer Recovery Association, a private organization set up by cancer survivors. The Association hopes to help those affected by breast cancer to get through their life difficulties with outdoor sports.
The team now has 45 members. The average age of members is 56. They are trained in different groups with different training intensity.
