Health Magazine
Diane Cotting staying active after cancer, in Health Magazine

This article in Health magazine talks about the health benefits of staying active after cancer treatments. A major emphasis of the article is Diane's determination to keep rowing as the inspiration and impetus to start her oncologist Carolyn Kaelin to launch a study with 'Row as One', a Boston-based non-profit that encourages women to get into rowing. She is trying to dispel the conventional wisdom that too much arm movement is risky after breast cancer surgery.

They're out to demonstrate solidarity and a shared sort of recovery. They also want to win.
