Encouraging breast cancer survivors to get moving

Vicky Hallett, Washington Post, Thursday, September 23, 2010

Last October, Tracey McKee’s experience with Breast Cancer Awareness Month was personal: She learned she had Stage 3 of the disease. After undergoing a modified radical mastectomy, the 39-year-old was quickly cancer-free. But she was left with a tightness around her chest that felt like she was wearing a shrunken sports bra, arms that refused to lift above her head and general exhaustion.

  1. I read that the creator was Alberto Perez, but I guess he goes by Beto for short ;) That is great that they did a charity for breast cancer survivors, I bet they will love Zumba. It is such a great way to motivate people. I have always believed that exercise and friends will help keep your mind and body healthier. Zumba is good for your body and soul (because it’s so much fun too!)
