In Loving Memory

Vicci Guillet


Cajun Invasion suffered a tremendous loss when Vicci Guillet passed away on Sunday, May 10, 2015. Vicci was one of the original breast cancer survivors on the team and was always a source of inspiration. She was endlessly enthusiastic, had a real love for life, for Cajun Invasion, for dragon boating and was our team cheerleader. She always gave 110% and her motto was "leave it all on the water". Her strength of character and courage in the face of adversity helped her fight three battles with cancer; the final one took her from us. 

The picture here is from the 2014 IBCPC Participatory Dragon Boat Festival in Sarasota, FL. This was Vicci's last dragon boat race and she loved it, as you can see from the expression on her face. Cajun Invasion was lucky to have this extraordinary woman on the team; to say Vicci will be missed is an understatement. 

Paddles up, Vicci! Time to get ready for your next heat!
