Dear Friends and Family,
On August 24th at Jetties beach I will swim 1 mile in the ocean to support cancer care on Nantucket. I am dedicating this years swim to my friend Troy Towne! I am also swimming in memory of my Grandpa Jack and our friends Ann Coddaire & Shelley Ferguson and to help all the people on Nantucket who have Cancer.
Last years swim raised $400,000 for on island cancer care. Swim Across America Nantucket is funding vital services for local cancer patients, minimizing their need to travel for appointments, testing and treatment, allowing our friends and neighbors who are fighting cancer on Nantucket to experience less disruption of their lives. We are truly making a difference in people's lives. If you are on Island August 25th please come to Jetties Beach to cheer on the swimmers and hear first hand how your donation is making a positive difference.
In our lifetime, one in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer. I joined the SAA community so that, together, we can change that. I am challenging myself by swimming in the Nantucket Island Open Water Swim and raising as much money to fight cancer as I can. Please support me by sponsoring my swim and making a gift. Thank you for your generosity and may it lead to a cancer-free world!
