The human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it!
I am happy to say that this will be my sixth year participating in Swim Across America. This year, I chose to do the 2 mile swim. Like everyone who participates in Swim Across America, I have a personal stake in conquering cancer. My dad was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer in 2016. It was a scary time, but with the support of family and friends, strength, and courage, he is a survivor. Since this disease has affected members of both my immediate family and my extended family, I am more aware of the importance of cancer research.
I am continuously amazed to see so many people come together for such a great cause. Events like these can go a long way in curing this disease. Please support me by sponsoring my swim and making a gift. The money you donate will go towards cancer research, prevention, and treatment and will make an impact in the fight to find a cure. Thank you for your generosity. May it lead to a cancer-free world!

Check should be made out to Swim Across America but please include a note mentioning my name as the swimmer you are supporting!
