      Dragons is a nonprofit organization made up of
      breast cancer survivors and supporters. Think of
      them as an on-water, active, empowering support
      group for survivors. Of course, they are much more
      than that … paddling, laughing, exercising with
      a mission to strengthen minds, bodies and souls.
      Many of the team have had similar health journeys
      and are there to encourage and lift each other.
        Hell Gate’s goal is to support breast cancer
      survivors and their supporters on their road
      to recovery, not just on the team, but in the
      community, as well. Last month you may have
      seen them at the Stuart Saltwater Sisters’ captain’s
