I help lead Swim Across America in my community because I am passionate about the innovative gene and immunotherapy cancer research we fund. We all continue to be touched by cancer. This research continues to give me hope.
The money raised by our 14th annual Swim Across America Fairfield County open water swim on June 27th benefits the Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy in Stamford, CT. The ACGT scientists are developing ways to stimulate a patient’s own body to kill cancer by reprogramming the immune system, targeting only the cancer with few side effects to healthy tissue.
This February, pancreatic cancer took my dear friend Bonnie Bancroft. Bonnie embodied everything good and right in the world and made each of us want to be a better person. I created team Bonnie's Buddies this year to honor and preserve Bonnie's legacy.
Swim Across America is more than a swim, we are a cause and we are family. Volunteers and participants more than donate, we have created a culture that SAA offers empowerment and hope. Please consider joining the team by participating, sponsoring a swimmer or making a donation.
