Welcome to My Personal Page
This will be my eight year of swimming the Nantucket Swim Across America event. I am blessed to be able to swim the annual event and support those who need oncology and palliative care services on Nantucket. This year the event will expand its scope to include financial support for an investigational cancer therapy at Mass General-Brighams in Boston. Nationally, the Swim Across America supports start up and investigational programs designed to be the leading edge of our Nation's challenge to cancer. Nantucket will now expand its scope to join in this national effort.
All of us have been touched in some way by cancer. I was diagnosed three years ago with prostate cancer. My mother died of small cell lung cancer. No family gets away scot free from cancer. We can all do a small part by volunteering, swimming and donating to this great cause to combat cancer. I will be swimming four miles in the ocean to do my part to fight cancer. Would you please join me by making a donation of any size to my swim? You can either use the link below or send a check to made out to Nantucket Swim Across America to Jill Roethke, 14 Bluebird Lane, Nantucket MA 02554 or me at 50 N. Liberty Street Nantucket, MA 02554. Or use the link and give online. Thanks for your generosity. Let’s do this!
