On January 18, 2023, the Sousa Family received a call that no one ever wants to hear. Toni Sousa was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
Our family always taught us to make the best out of a bad situation which is why I will be raising money for Swim Across America-Boston. The proceeds will go to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Mass General Hospital for Children Cancer Center for early-stage funding in clinical trials that may lead to breakthroughs that can save lives in our community.
If you are able to, please support Team Sousa by making a gift. I hope some of you will join me for this swim under Team Sousa as we make waves in the fight for cancer.
My mom has played a huge role as an official in New England Swimming, high school swimming, and collegiate swimming across MA. It only seems right to honor her by joining Swim Across America’s mission to cure cancer.
Thank you for taking the time to read, donate, and/or join me in this swim. We are all in this together to help in the fight against cancer.
We appreciate every member of Team Sousa and their support to end cancer for good.
