I swim to honor his memory and to do my small part to help put an end to this awful disease! I also swim in honor of my mother (a two time cancer survivor), and in the memory of my close friend Maite Aquino. I am also swimming in memory of Nik Lacgalvis, who passed away last year after a courageous five-year battle with cancer.
Many of you supported me last year, and I am hoping that you will consider supporting this great cause again this year. 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 lead to a cancer-free world!
