For 8 years my wife Martha and I have been participating in Swim Across America by raising funds for cancer research at SCCA knowing it was for someone else. Last summer Martha was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, now we know the fight is personal. Oddly, the discovery was the result of a shoulder xray as she was considering whether surgery was needed to repair her "swimmer's shoulder". Martha bravely worked to cure herself but passed away in late May of this year. We continue to keep her spirit moving on and are in the fight to beat this cancer. So much knowledge is needed to fight cancer and we know she and many are the beneficiary of all the previous research, but we need more knowledge to advance further. Please join her Team to support more research to help grow our knowledge and beat cancer for everyone. The funds you send will honor and remember Martha and her support of the Pancreas Cancer Specialty Clinic at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.

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 Seattle Open Water Swim 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!
