Breast cancer adventurers

I  am captivated by the tagline of Amazon Heart which asks the question What if breast cancer is just the start of an incredible journey?

Amazon Heart was founded in 2004 by two young breast cancer survivors, Megan Dwyer and Meredith Campbell. 

Their mission is to transform the lives of women living with breast cancer through adventure events that in themselves create a wider social impact in their local communities. The name is inspired by the Amazon warriors of Greek legend who were renowned as strong and independent fighters, famed for removing one breast to improve the accuracy of their archers. Amazon Heart, reflects the challenge women face in incorporating the emotional vulnerability and fragility brought by a diagnosis of cancer, with a strong and independent outlook on life.
