One and a half million Americans will hear the words "you have cancer" for the first time this year. Thanks to advances in early detection and treatment many will survive and join the ranks of over 10 million who are already considered survivors. However, the toll taken by both cancer and its treatment frequently leaves individuals facing challenges far greater than mere survival. Awaken the Dragon, a 90 minute documentary, filmmaker Liz Oakley introduces us to an unlikely crew of cancer survivors who have found an unconventional path to wellness through the ancient Chinese sport of dragon boating.
