I am swimming this year as a gesture of support for a family affected by Li-Fraumeni syndrome (LFS), an inherited familial predisposition to a wide range of certain, often rare, cancers. This family is currently battling multiple cancers and advances in science, including those supported by beneficiaries of Swim Across America, have greatly improved their care.
It is a privilege to be healthy and able to swim with friends and colleagues, but it is an even greater privilege to know the family I am supporting through this swim. We all want to do everything we can when friends and loved ones are battling, often times supporting the science that can directly benefit their care is the most meaningful help to offer.

Check should be made out to Swim Across America but please include a note mentioning my name as the swimmer you are supporting!
