As many of you know, my mom, Alfia Livaccari, was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer in May 2021. Her team at MSKCC led by Dr. Eileen O'Reilly, have been and continue to be top notch. That said, my mother is still alive and fighting like never before due to her spirit and will to live. Even though her disease is considered to be one of the worst, she holds out hope that "something new will come along". Your support of cancer research makes this possible.
If you are able, please support me by making a gift. The researchers we are funding are in our community and are the next generation of cancer pioneers. 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!
