Welcome to My Page!
I have been part of Swim Across America Nantucket since 2015. In honor of this being my 5th year participating in this event, I have decided to challenge myself. Historically I have swam 1 - 2 miles, this year I am going to swim 4.
Swim Across America, specifically Nantucket, is important to me. My parents plan to retire on Nantucket, and every 15 minutes, 50 Americans are diagnosed with cancer. So, the probability of them needing on island cancer care is likely.
Further, I wanted to join the Swim Across America-Nantucket family, so that I can continue to give on island cancer patients hope by raising funds to support on-island cancer treatment and patient care.
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 to my personal fundraising page. Every bit helps and will make a huge impact on those fighting cancer on Nantucket!
