Dr. Carolyn M. Kaelin

The obit for Dr. Kaelin appears in today's NYTimes.

Dr. Kaelin dedicated her career to research, advocacy and surgery to help breast cancer victims.

As the obituary says, she "helped start research that found rowing could help relieve lymphedema, the painful swelling in the arms that affects many women after breast cancer surgery."

Google her. Honor her. Buy her books.

Support programs that use rowing to support breast cancer survivors.  See, for example, Recovery on Water, a Chicago-area group:  http://www.recoveryonwater.org/
