Still swimming after six years and still meeting with my instructor Kitty who continues to help me master different strokes. Backstroke, breast and flip-turn - check. The butterfly is coming along nicely thank you. This year once again I'll swim on my own in my building pool with Kitty counting my laps. Last year I swam a mile but cut my time by 10 minutes from the previous year.
Making your donation will support Swim Across America and raise money for the fight against cancer and I am so grateful for your past support. I'm still volunteering at Dana-Farber and I'm also the co-President of the Friends of Dana-Farber and know first hand how important funding is to research. Funding cutbacks are constant at the National Institute for Health and we need to support the new, cutting-edge researchers who are at Dana-Farber. We need them and they need us.
Thank you again for your generous support of me and for a cause that has touched many of our lives in some way. As an additional challenge you can match my contribution.
