Welcome to My Personal Page
This is my second year joining Team Carolyn and Excel Swimming to swim in memory of my wonderful friend and dedicated swimmer, Carolyn Jaenisch. I am participating in 2 fundraising swims in 2023, this being first and the second is in England in the chilly September waters Carolyn enjoyed as she swam in a Channel Relay swim some years back. We had been discussing the possibility of doing a relay swim together and had hoped to get there. Carolyn continued swimming up until it became difficult to use her arms in May 2021, and a rare, aggressive form of lung cancer was diagnosed. Undergoing treatment and therapy, Carolyn’s hope was to recover and get back to what she loved to do… swim. New treatments and therapies require funding. We swim to raise awareness and funds for these and, ultimately, cures.
If you are able, please support me by making a gift. The researchers we are funding are in our community and are the next generation of cancer pioneers. Without Swim Across America early stage funding, they are not able to conduct trials that can lead to breakthroughs that can save lives. Thank you for helping make an impact in the fight to find a cure!
