Review for Team Survivor Northwest, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I joined Team Survivor 9 years ago right out of treatment. I had no idea what I could safely do with Lymphedema. I came so that I could figure out how to recover from treatment and how to live with my changed body. I am still part of Team Survivor and hope to be here for another 10 or 20 years. This is the most welcoming and supportive group of women you could imagine. You come for the fitness programs and don't imagine the incredible support and hope you receive from the other women. After a couple of years I joined the Dragon Boat team and as one member says, "It was almost worth getting cancer to be on this team with this group of women." I cannot describe the value of seeing 20 year survivors living full lives and staying fit and in better shape than most women their age. I serve on the board so that I can pay it forward to other women.
