The KTB Team
Our team is amazing. We have very strong women on our team, both mentally and physically. Some of our team members paddle with us even while going through Chemo treatments. They are an inspiration to us all. Others support us and are there for us when we are having a bad day. We all are there for each other with prayer and support for everyone. This is not your typical support group! Our team consists of survivors from 4 months to 17 years out. If added all together we total over 130 years of surviving and thriving! When one has a question someone is there with an answer.
