My dad has been involved in Swim Across America in Georgia since it started. I was really proud of his participation, but I didn’t think about getting involved until last year when I watched one of my best friends experience the devastation of cancer.
Her name is Camille High, and her mother Karen passed away from Colon Cancer just last year after a 5 year battle. Mrs. High was a fighter and she never gave up. She fought to be able to watch Camille graduate from Wesleyan School and she fought to watch her other daughter Cate walk down the aisle– just one week before she was reunited with the Lord. Mrs. High was a bright light in my life and to everyone she came in contact with. She loved her family, her dog Louie, and her home back in Texas. She was very involved in National Charity League and her church “Trinity Anglican” in Atlanta.
Last year when I began fundraising my goal was to raise 1,000 dollars. But, with the help and support of so many I was able to raise over 9,000 dollars in honor of Karen High! This year I have put my goal at 10,000 dollars and would love to do the unimaginable and break that goal yet again! I want to help find a cure for cancer for my friend Camille and for every family who is living with this terrible disease.

Thank you in advance for your love and support,
In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. I joined the SAA community so that, together, we can change that. I am challenging myself by swimming in the Atlanta Open Water Swim in memory of Karen High and raising as much money to fight cancer as I can. Please support me by sponsoring my swim and making a gift. The money you give will go towards cancer research, prevention and treatment and will make an impact in the fight to find a cure. Thank you for your generosity and may it lead to a cancer-free world!
