On Saturday August 3rd, I will be participating in a fundraising swim in Los Angeles to support cancer research and treatment. I am swimming in solidarity with a fantastic group of friends in New York who are taking on the Long Island Sound.
Like many of the other participants, I am swimming in honor of friends and relatives who are fighting against or have lost their battle to this disease. I swim for three people in particular: my father, Bob, who lost his battle with cancer just a year ago; my mother, Maureen, who is a thyroid cancer survivor; and one of my dearest friends, Stacey, who lost her brave fight eleven years ago.
The proceeds from our swims will support an array of cancer research centers. These organizations were all near and dear to Stacey's heart -- we continue her fight by giving.
Please consider supporting my swim by making a donation to my personal fundraising page. No donation is too small; every little bit helps.
Thank you for giving!
