I am volunteering at the Island Swim on August 27th because I want to help support cancer care on Nantucket.
I serve on the Board of Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket (PASCON). The proceeds from the swim will be split between our organization and Nantucket Cottage Hospital and used for cancer care.
PASCON provides FREE support and services to anyone on island affected by life-threatening illness. Most of our patients have cancer. Our compassionate staff is there from diagnosis onward with guidance, resources, support, and understanding. 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!
You can make a credit card donation here, or send a check to Swim Across America, c/o Jill Roethke, 14 Bluebird Ln, Nantucket, MA 02554. Please be sure to write my name in the Memo field.
