Welcome to Alissa's personal page
I plan to swim one mile in Lake Lanier in Atlanta on September 23 to raise money for Swim Across America, a charity that raises money for cancer research, clinical trials and patient programs at well-known research institutions. Not only has cancer impacted me personally, but I have also lost friends to cancer, supported others through chemotherapy, and seen friends deal with the heart-wrenching experience of having a child fighting cancer.
This is my 3rd year participating in the swim. I plan to swim a mile and have been swimming on a regular basis to prepare. While doing those laps, I think about the challenges that many cancer patients have faced and overcome, and this inspires me to keep going. On September 23, I will have the privilege of swimming alongside others who are joining in this cause, including cancer survivors and former Olympians, some who have had cancer.. In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. I joined the Swim Across America community so that, together, we can change that and improve the lives of people who have been diagnosed with cancer and help with medical breakthroughs.
If you are able, please support me by making a gift. . Thank you for helping make an impact in the fight to find a cure!
