Fatigue after treatment for breast cancer has an impact on quality of life. Dragon boating is known to be beneficial. A multiple-point cohort panel design was used. Data was collected from breast cancer survivors to measure fatigue, quality of life, and upper arm functioning at 3 time points. Fatigue levels fell significantly between T1 and T2 and from T2 to T3. Similarly, upper limb functioning improved from T1 to T2 but showed no significant change between T2 and T3. The findings suggest that dragon boating, as a form of exercise, has a role in reducing fatigue.
