Welcome to My Personal Page
Thank you so much for being here. Every 15 minutes, 50 Americans are diagnosed with cancer. Even during a pandemic, people continue to hear the terrible words ‘you have cancer’.
I have so many loved ones who have been affected by cancer. I’ve worked with countless families as they navigate this path with their child. I remember those we’ve lost with the promise that I will see them again. I swim to bring a sense of peace and comfort to those facing the unimaginable. I swim for the siblings who find themselves an only child. I swim for others who cannot.
Proceeds directly support Nantucket Cottage Hospital's oncology program which brings world-class oncology services to Nantucket, allowing patients to access much of their cancer care close to home, without the cost and stressful burden of off-island travel. Many of these cancer services are performed in the new state of the art Swim Across America Infusion Center. Similarly, SAA - Nantucket funding that supports Palliative and Supportive Care of Nantucket allows them to provide direct care and services on the island to patients and families who are coping with cancer, free of charge.
If you are able, please support me by making a donation. I am so grateful for your generosity and support of others.
