“Paddles Up” for a Cure

Monday, October 31st, 2011

FabSkin247® represented the Reprev™ cancer skin care line from A-Cute Derm at the 8th Annual Gulf Coast International Dragon Boat Regatta held October 22-23, 2011 at the Flour Daniel corporate center in Sugar Land , Texas.  This was sponsored by the Texas Dragon Boat Association (www.texasdragonboat.com) to increase awareness of Asian and Asian-American culture, and enhance cross cultural
understanding.

Although dragon boat teams are comprised of corporate, youth and community teams, a special emphasis was placed on Breast Cancer survivors &
friends teams.  Pink Phurree, a team comprised of breast cancer survivors said, “We are here to demonstrate that there is lots of life after breast cancer
diagnosis and/or treatment”.

They are one of hundreds of breast cancer dragon teams worldwide who promote awareness, inspire others, and support each other by encouraging a
healthy lifestyle through dragon boating, providing a caring support system, encouraging team spirit, and demonstrating courage, and strength.

The weekend culminated in a moving and deeply spirited event Sunday afternoon when six boats of cancer survivors came together to remember those who lost their lives to cancer by each crew member throwing a carnation into the water, and also to celebrate their lives and hope for the future by raising their paddles.

The Reprev™ skin care line was developed specifically for the unique skin care needs of cancer patients, especially those undergoing chemotherapy and / or radiation. We were honored to be a part of this exciting, upbeat, and FUN weekend!  Perhaps “All Hands Abreast” another Breast Cancer team for survivors and patients said it best, “We race to raise awareness and inspire others that through laughter and tears, we are strong, we are courageous and we will endure!”

Thank you to everyone for being such an inspiration to all of us!
