Welcome to My Personal Page
I am excited to join Team Carolyn this year. Last summer Carolyn Chestler received a surprising terminal cancer diagnosis for an otherwise extraordinarily healthy person. Carolyn's husband Steve and their two children started this Team in Carolyn's memory. Carolyn swam for years with the same Master's Swim Team as I have, AquaFit/Excel Swimming. It is wonderful that last year's SAA Team Excel has merged with Team Carolyn to support Steve and his Family in memory of Carolyn.
At SAA Nassau Suffolk we have raised approx. $11 million in the last 20 years. principally for cancer research. We have been very fortunate that our cancer researchers are the best and have had much success. But, there is so much more to do, and so we continue to SWIM. As devastating as Carolyn's situation was, we know there will be more unfortunate surprises for too many individuals and their families. So what we can do is swim and raise $$ to support the best cancer research.
In 2022, as opposed to a one day swim this summer , my goal is to swim 350+ miles in in Honor of my good friend Randy Hill. For years Randy and I swam at AquaFit/Excel Masters Swimming. Randy has also been a loyal SAA swimmer, completing a number of 10K Swims. Unfortunately, Randy's brain tumor has begun to grow again after many years , and I am supporting his fight with his fight.. I hope many of you will support my swimming and Randy's fight also!
My fundraising Goal is $5000+. Any donation you 'd consider is much appreciated!
Thank you for taking the time to visit my page, and considering supporting my, and Team Carolyn's efforts to 'MAKE WAVES TO FIGHT CANCER".
