As you may know, my daughter, Keira and I have been involved with Swim Across America for over 18 years. Like all members of TEAM HOPE, we are "committed to the support of our families and friends who are engaged in the struggle against cancer. We have dedicated ourselves to the memory of those whose battle is over and who are now at peace." This battle is a very personal one for us as our beloved Patti and so many of our dear relatives and friends have been taken by this terrible disease.
On Saturday, Aug. 5th, I will be with TEAM HOPE at Glen Cove's Morgan Park as we swim, kayak and volunteer to "make waves to fight cancer."
The proceeds of our swims will support cancer research at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center-SAA Laboratory, the Children's Hospital at Montefiore, the Feinstein Institute and the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Also, we are supporting Fighting Chance, a free Cancer Resource and Counseling Center in Sag Harbor, NY and the MIRACLE Pavilion at Mercy Medical Center in Rockville Centre, NY.

Thank you, and please keep TEAM HOPE, and all those we swim for, in your prayers.
