I have been personally affected by cancer several times in my life. In 2018 I lost my sister to brain cancer after a 7 year fight with a malignant oligodendroglioma. My mother and a couple of Aunts also have survived breast cancer, and one of my Aunt's died of ovarian cancer. I am currently battling triple negative breast cancer - I was diagnosed on August 7, 2019. I'm finishing chemo on January 18, 2020 and will be having surgery in February. This will be followed by radiation treatments.
The beneficiary of the Seattle Swim is Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) where I am being treated. They are doing wonderful work there, and I'm happy to have the opportunity to give back.
