Dear Friends and Family,
This year, since we can’t come together for our traditional open water swim at Jetties beach, I am participating in the Swim Across America: Coast to Coast challenge. I will be logging activity miles to help Swim Across America virtually travel across America.
Cancer care and support services on Nantucket have continued uninterrupted, in fact, they have actually increased to allow more patients to receive treatment in the comfort and safety of our community hospital rather than traveling off-island to Boston.
Proceeds from Swim Across America - Nantucket will support cancer treatment and patient care at Nantucket Cottage Hospital and Palliative and Supportive Care of Nantucket. Through the efforts of these organizations and the support of SAA - Nantucket, residents and visitors alike can receive outstanding cancer treatment and support on the island at the “Swim Across America Infusion Center".
Last year’s swim raised over $400,000 for on island cancer care. If you are able, please support SAA by donating to my personal fundraising page. Each donation received adds another mile to our journey! If you’d like to join in the fun, register to log activity miles with me! Every bit helps and will make an impact. I am thankful for your support and for all the encouragement as I take on this challenge to raise much needed funds.
