SBYC - 'tit Bateau

SBYC : Home to 'tit Bateau, South East New Brunswick's Breast Cancer Survivor Dragon Boat Team

In November 2002 three women got together over coffee and contemplated forming a dragon boat team for the breast cancer survivors of Southeast New Brunswick. Inspired by a presentation about dragon boating by Bosom Buddies of Nova Scotia, other breast cancer survivors quickly got on board the project. They thought launching a dragon boat in the waters off New Brunswick was a wonderful idea and were thrilled when the community jumped in with its support.

'tit Bateau came into being as a team in January 2003, and since then we have become friends, a support system for each other and public educators about breast health/breast cancer.

So here we are now, paddles in hand, joining the voices of other breast cancer survivor teams across Canada to increase public awareness of breast health/breast cancer.

We are also strengthening ourselves emotionally and physically while having a lot of fun!
