As you may know, my daughter, Keira and I have been involved with Swim Across America for over 20 years. Like all members of TEAM HOPE, we are "committed to the support of our families and friends who are engaged in the struggle against cancer. We have dedicated ourselves to the memory of those whose battle is over and who are now at peace." This battle is a very personal one for us as our beloved Patti and so many of our dear relatives and friends have been taken by this terrible disease.
COVID-19 has forced the cancellation of our SAA sponsored events. However, it has not stopped me or TEAM HOPE from "making waves to fight cancer." I have established a personal goal of swimming a total of 10 miles this summer. The proceeds of my swims will support cancer research at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center-SAA Laboratory, the MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital, the Feinstein Institute at North Shore LIJ and the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. .
