These outings occur approximately once a month throughout the state.

The Nurture with Nature Kayak Excursion will offer survivors the chance to kayak, single and tandem, the shores of the Assawoman Bay with other survivors. The program will be led by breast cancer survivor, teacher, and naturalist, Deloris Donnelly. Interested participants should contact Lois Wilkinson at 302-672-6435 or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to register. The session will cost $10 per person and you must register by July 22nd to participate. Participants should bring a swimsuit. After the excursion, guests are invited to bring a brown bag dinner for a picnic poolside at Deloris’s house to watch the sunset.

The program is open to all breast cancer survivors and no kayaking experience is needed. The session will meet at 5:00 p.m. at Coastal Kayak located at 36840 Coastal Highway in Fenwick. Transportation can also be arranged from the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition offices in Dover and Lewes. For more information on upcoming events please visit http://www.debreastcancer.org/events.

About DBCC:

The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition is a 501(c)(3) organization offering statewide programs and services of education, outreach, and early detection and treatment of breast cancer. Its mission is to create a community where every person diagnosed with breast cancer is a survivor, and fear and doubt are replaced with knowledge and hope.

Headquartered in Wilmington with offices in Sussex and Kent Counties, DBCC’s programs reach diverse communities to deliver messages that address their unique concerns about breast cancer and early detection. Recognizing the barriers of language, culture, and economics, DBCC trains community advocates to educate and encourage women to take responsibility for breast health. DBCC helps women with low incomes and those with little or no insurance to receive free or reduced-cost care. 

DBCC also supports the National Breast Cancer Coalition and their research efforts by helping to facilitate participation in local clinical trials. All funds raised for DBCC support programs in Delaware and the neighboring areas in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey.
