I'm volunteering at this year's swim AND doing an off-site 1/4 mile swim because it's important to this community.
I lost my grandmother to cancer. I have friends battling it who are far too young. And I work for Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket (PASCON). The proceeds from the swim stay on island for cancer treatment and care.
I know firsthand how important the supportive services of PASCON are during difficult times. I can only imagine how important they are for those facing a cancer diagnosis. PASCON is here for everyone on island who receives that diagnosis: to guide them, to assist them with difficult decisions, to listen, to support, to encourage. Our programs and services are invaluable - and yet everything we offer is completely free of charge. We absolutely need community support to fund this program.
Please support me, PASCON, and all those on Nantucket affected by cancer with a donation today. No gift is too small. Thank you so much for anything you can do - it will make a difference!
