Welcome to My Personal Page
In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. It hit home hard when a long time, close family friend succumbed to a protracted battle with colon cancer shortly before her oldest daughter was married. She was in a race with life to see her daughter walk down the aisle and lost that race. Right now, I am watching a friend battle this disease ... again. She is fighting back with a grace, elegance, strength and determination that is nothing short of inspirational. I joined the Swim Across America community so that, together, we can change that. I am fortunate to be blessed with good health and can use that gift to create attention, give back and help impact a local and extremely worthy cause.
If you are able, please support me by making a gift. The researchers we are funding are in our community and are the next generation of cancer pioneers. With Swim Across America early stage funding, they will be able to conduct trials that can lead to breakthroughs that can extend and save lives. This research is real, too. We have friends and colleagues that have benefitted directly from this local work in their battle against this disease. Thank you for helping make an impact in the fight to find a cure!
