Welcome to Cecile's Swim Across America Page
In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. Several family members and friends have been among those diagnosed and treated. Some were lucky and survived, others were not as fortunate. I have joined Swim Across America community for several years now to raise funding for research and , so that, together, we can change that.
If you are able, please support me by making a gift. The researchers we are funding are in our community and proceeds from the swim in Chicago will support early-stage research and clinical trials for a variety of cancer types at the Swim Across America Lab at Rush University Cancer Center. Read here to learn more about the projects and investigators that your fundraising supports. Without Swim Across America early stage funding, they are not able to conduct trials that can lead to breakthroughs that can save lives. Thank you for helping make an impact in the fight to find a cure!
