Five years ago, we completed a swim from Cape Cod to Nantucket and raised over $150,000 to help bring world class cancer treatment and care to Nantucket Cottage Hospital. This year, I was planning three organized marathon swims, but then Covid-19 happened. This pandemic has changed all of our lives. And for cancer patients on island, it has prevented many from traveling off island for treatment. Now, more than ever, the Nantucket community and Cottage Hospital needs your help.
While pools have been closed and organized swims have been cancelled, I am committing to Swim Across America's 4-mile swim this summer. If circumstances prevent us from swimming as a group this year, I will swim a solo 10k marathon.
Please stay safe, and thank you for your support of my swim and this community. Proceeds directly support the Nantucket Cottage Hospital (NCH) and the Palliative and Supportive Care of Nantucket (PASCON) oncology efforts to fund vital services for local and visiting cancer patients, minimizing their need to travel for appointments, testing and treatment. Our support allows NCH oncology programs to keep more Nantucket residents on-island for their cancer care, providing them a compassionate and caring environment. We help bring world-class oncologists to the island, allowing our patients to receive treatments at home. Through PASCON, our patients and families receive important physical, emotional and spiritual care free of charge.
