This our 27th year of the Long Island Sound Swim. We have raised over $18 million. My family has been involved from the first year. My son Daniel was diagnosed in 1991 with stage 4 rhabdomyosarcoma. His tumor was inoperable and spread to both lungs. He was treated at NY Presbyterian Childrens Hospital. Through an experimental protac all he is in remission for 27 years, and is now married to Liz and they have two beautiful daughters. This year I am swimming in memory of my cousin Debbie who passed away from lung cancer in 2015 after a valient, brave battle. Also dedicating my swim to my friend Will who passed away from leukemia, Caroline11 years old who passed away from childhood cancer & Scarlett 8 years old from a brain tumor. Also want to dedicate my efforts in honor of Clair, Lucille who are being treated.
