Welcome to Charlotte Thompson's Page
My name is Charlotte Thompson. I am 17 years old and I am excited to be participating in this year's Swim Across America benefitting pediatric cancer research at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. Last year I served on the Junior Advisory Board for the Atlanta SAA event and was able to use my position and outreach to get more people involved in this amazing event. I have spent many hours at CHOA and can say what an amazing hospital and staff they have. I have a genetic condition (BWS) that makes me susceptible to certain types of cancer. From ages 2-9 I was scanned every 3 months for abdominal tumors and neuroblastoma, now I am scanned yearly. I have been lucky to have been cleared at every scan. But I am swimming for the other children who have not been as lucky. Will you help me? Will you make a donation to support pediatric cancer research? I appreciate your consideration.
You can make a credit card donation here, or send a check to Swim Across America, c/o Nancy Peek, PO Box 1078, Tucker, GA 30085.
Check should be made out to Swim Across America but please include a note mentioning my name as the swimmer you are supporting!
