We lost some great people to cancer over the last year and I am going to continue to help fight this disease. I am swimming three miles in their memory on Saturday, June 27th in the Swim Across America - Fairfield County Open Water Swim in Long Island Sound. This swim is for the benefit of the Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy in Stamford, CT which funds some fabulous cancer researchers and scientists around the country. They are making great progress in their research and their results are what is helping to keep others alive today.
I have teamed up with Team Julian once again to continue the legacy of Julian Fraser, a wonderful young man and a close family friend who lost his battle with osteosarcoma in 2017 at age 20. Julian's legacy is being preserved through this team of dedicated friends, swimmers and fundraisers, and as long as I am able, I will swim and raise money in Julian's memory and for our friends who are fighting the battle, or who have lost the battle with cancer.
We miss our friends, but we will continue to remember and honor them as we make waves to fight cancer.
In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. I joined the Swim Across America community so that, together, we can change that. I am challenging myself by swimming three miles in the Fairfield County Open Water Swim and raising as much money to fight cancer as I can. 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. Thank you for your generosity and may it help lead to a cancer-free world!
