I'm participating in Swim Across America this year to support immunotherapy research and clinical trials at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center! Immunotherapy is one of the most promising ways to treat, cure, and ultimately prevent cancer. Decades ago, when immunotherapy was still considered unconventional & high risk/high reward, Swim Across America was the largest non-government organization to provide funding to MSKCC's efforts. The cutting-edge translational research and clinical trials that were made possible by this funding have led to millions of dollars of NIH support and the development of four FDA approved immunotherapy medicines! However, there is more work that needs to be done and you can help by donating here!
This swim also benefits pediatric oncology research at Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital of New York-Presbyterian and provides funding for patient support services at Cancer Support Team in Westchester County, NY!
This is my first time doing Swim Across America and my first open water 5K so I'd really appreciate your support! You can make a credit card donation here or send a check to Swim Across America, PO Box 217, Larchmont, NY 10538 (Checks should be made out to Swim Across America, but please include a note mentioning my name as the swimmer you are supporting!).
