Now in their eighth season, Paddlers for Life will host the North West Cancer Survivorship Conference at Low Wood Bay on Saturday, 12th September and the spectacular Charity Dragon Boat Regatta the following day. This is an opportunity for GPs and health professionals, cancer rehabilitation specialists, cancer survivors and supporters to get together in the heart of the beautiful Lake District, discovering together what the future can hold for cancer survivors and to build a greater understanding of the eclectic nature of the physical, social and practical needs of cancer survivors in order to drive practice improvement.

Lynn Shamal, cancer survivor, tells her story of how dragon boat racing has been vital in her road to recovery.
