Heather Webber, a coach with Sistership Calgary, a dragon boat racing team and herself a breast cancer survivor. In January 2009 she decided to enter December's Honolulu Marathon. Two months later she was told that the cancer had returned for a third time. Undaunted, she continued to train, saying, "Just the fact that I had put something on the books - months down the road - has helped, giving me something to work toward." Sadly, Heather passed away on March 3, 2010.
