Team Survivor is a women's cancer survivor group who decided six years ago they wanted to have a dragon boat team. They're a bunch of cool, strong women, and it's one club I don't want anyone to join, but if you did, these are the sorts of folks you want to be around.
When they approached us about helping out as far as expenses go, we had little of our own resources, but we did what we could. The best resource was a phone call to Wisconsin Physician's Service (WPS) VP Bill Bathke, who is a prince of a guy and I can safely say has deeper pockets than we do. His organization funded the whole kit and caboodle and now Team Survivor has a huge purple dragonboat.
The drum had not arrived from China yet so they had to use my ice fishing bucket. It worked.
Thanks to all on Team Survivor Madison for allowing us to be part of this very cool thing.
