Team Karli - Alex Jacoby
Ever since my first swimming lesson at 7 months old, I have loved the water. Another thing I truly love is helping people. This summer, I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to combine those passions to raise money for cancer care on Nantucket island. This summer I will be participating in Swim Across America - Nantucket in memory of Karli Stahl. Karli was a close family friend and a year round resident of Nantucket whose contagious positive energy was, and continues to be, an inspiration to me and all who met her. Unfortunately, Karli lost her multi-year battle with cancer earlier this year. I am hoping you will please support my efforts to honor Karli’s memory and raise money to support on-island cancer 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.
