Dear Friends and Family,
I am looking forward to my fifth year participating in the Nantucket Open Swim. I will be swimming a mile to raise money for cancer treatment on island.
Nantucket is a unique location with logistical challenges when a family is faced with a cancer diagnosis. I am proud to be joining my swim team and the SAA community so that, together, we can make the journey through a cancer diagnosis easier on the patient and family. We are challenging ourselves by swimming in the Nantucket Island Swim and raising as much money to fight cancer on Nantucket.
We are changing the game of cancer care on Nantucket. With the Nantucket Cottage Hospital's Oncology Program, we are providing funding to allow world-class oncologists from Mass General to travel to Nantucket to see our patients. This reduces the need for our loved ones to travel during a time where energy should be spent on healing. Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket 's (PASCON) Survivorship Program works with not just the patient but with the family coping with this disease to help people regain and maintain well-being throughout the entire cancer experience.
Please support us by sponsoring our swim and making a gift. 100% of the money you give will go towards cancer care on Nantucket. Thank you for your generosity and may it lead to a cancer-free world!
Thank you for your support,
