On Saturday, July 30th, Team Deb/Talia, a dedicated group of swimmers, will be participating in Swim Across America's Orienta Beach Club Swim, a 1 mile fundraising swim dedicated to raising money and awareness for cancer research, prevention and treatment.
Our team is swimming in memory of Deborah Levitt Ron and Talia Cohen, two remarkable women who loved life, and were victims of cancer.
Deb was 53 years old when she lost her 15 year struggle with breast cancer on December 26th, 2010. She never let the disease define her life and lived every day to its fullest while bringing up two wonderful boys and being a remarkable wife, friend and psychologist. We miss her spirit, and sense of humor, her intense devotion to all those she knew and loved , and her selfless generosity.
Talia Cohen, died of cancer at age 16 in November 2002. She also fought hard to live the normal life of a teenager while undergoing brutal treatments. She loved being an MHS student, learning how to drive, and having fun with her friends. Talia was an inspiration to everyone who knew her. She fought her 19-month battle against cancer with courage and dignity.
By swimming in memory of Deb and Talia, we hope to help in the fight against this terrible disease. Please consider sponsoring our team so that together we can make a difference in this fight against cancer.
In the 19 years since its inception, this swim has raised over $10,000,000 for cancer research, prevention and treatment.
Please sponsor one of our Team Deb/Talia swimmers so that together we can make a difference in this fight against cancer.
