To my family and friends,
I will be swimming a mile in honor of my aunt, Allison. My goal is to bring awareness for very rare cancers, specifically inherited genetic cancer syndromes. With your support, it is my hope that people with rare cancers and syndromes will be given an opportunity to fight because there has been funding for research. Fundraising is very important to me and this is my second year making waves in the fight against cancer. I have the honor of swimming with Team Hope this year and funds raised will benefit Memorial Sloan Kettering. MSKCC is our family's lifeline. Cancer has left its mark in the lives of many people I know and love -- thank you for supporting me! Your friendly swimmer, Leo
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 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!
