This is my second year with Swim Across America and I’m excited that I’m going to do it again with Jess, my 13 year old son. Last year I kept him on point as he swam to shore. This year I'm hoping I can just keep up. As a personal challenge, I plan on doing the swim this year without a wetsuit.
I'm swimming in honor of my aunt, who is living with cancer, and my father-in-law, whom I never had the honor of meeting. My inspiration for swimming is Susan Helmrich, who is so damn fast in the pool! I'm also looking forward to the testimonials on the ferry as we head out to the Bay. Last year they were inspiring and humbling.
Cancer has made me acutely aware of how precious life is and swimming is one of the best ways I have found to celebrate living.
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!
