I haven't swum since high school! I nearly drowned the other week when trying to swim laps for the first time in decades! but here goes nothing!!!!!!
You all know my commitment to raising funds for Cancer (see www.larrysorelegs.blogspot.com).
This year, I'm challenging myself by swimming in the Boston Harbor Swim and raising money for cancer research/support at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the MassGeneral Hospital for Children Cancer Center. 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.
I swim in remembrance(s) of my mother Claire L'Italien, my aunts Mary Saltis and Kathy Minnehan, my uncle Richard Minnehan, my memere Lucille L'Italien, my friend Jan Chisholm (whom adopted one of our cats, Johnny, when we first moved from Maine to SF, he liked her more than he liked us)
I swim for the survivors or for those currently battling cancer: (will add names upon receiving permission)
I swim...because I can (well I think I can!)
Thanks with lots of love, Larry
