Our Story

Limitless launched in March 2023 as the Breast Cancer Survivor Team of Jax Fire Dragons. In 2024, Limitless expanded to include all cancer survivors with the creation of the All Cancer Survivor Team.

We provide our survivors with support, raising awareness and providing the opportunity to strengthen the body and spirit, regain confidence and provide an avenue to connect with other survivors.

Limitless is open to survivors, providers, and supporters of cancer survivors, regardless of recovery timeline. No experience necessary!

Limitless Welcomes survivors of any stage of treatment, recovery, or beyond! The support, camaraderie, and being on the water have all been very healing. I will forever be grateful!


What I love about paddling with the Limitless team is that it gave me the opportunity to connect with other people who understood my breast cancer experience, because they had gone through it themselves.  We were able to meet in a non-medical setting and bond over learning a new skill that has a positive impact on wellness.  I had never paddled before, and am not an athlete, but the coaching that Jax Fire Dragons provided, and the support and friendship of my teammates has made the experience positive and fun!


I could not have survived one and a half years of chemotherapy without my JFD family. Their support and love encouraged me to push myself beyond where I ever thought I could go, physically, emotionally, holistically.
