On Saturday, July 25th I'll be swimming 1.5 miles again in the Long Island Sound with Swim Across America! This year I'll be swimming with TEAM CLARE at the encouragement of my amazing chiropractor (and fellow teammate), Dr. Richard Davidson. Supporting the fight against cancer while encouraging cancer patients, their family and friends and fellow survivors will always be my life mission. I believe I went through my journey of ovarian cancer for a reason. I'm ecstatic that proceeds from this particular event will support research for Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center! Sloan Kettering will always hold a special place in my heart and I'm forever grateful for the care I received there almost 10 years ago.
I'll swim this year in honor of George, our miracle boy, and Jeff Carpenter who continues to fight like hell up a long and uphill battle. I'll swim in memory of my Grandpa Marty who lost his fight to prostate cancer.
