Time to join Hope in the Valley & Mayo Clinic Health System for the Half Moon Dragon Boat Festival on August 4th, 2018!
Dragon boat racing originated in China about 2,000 years ago, and began gaining popularity with breast cancer survivors in the late 1990s. That’s when a Canadian doctor discovered that repetitive-motion exercise, such as dragon boat paddling, could help breast cancer patients avoid developing lymphedema, a permanent swelling that can occur in the arms or legs after surgery or radiation treatment.
