On Friday July 12th, I will be participating in the Swim Across America Pool Swim at the New York Athletic Club in Pelham Manor, N.Y. I’m swimming as a volunteer for Cancer Support Team.
Cancer Support Team (CST) is unique in Westchester and in cancer care in general. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life of cancer patients and their families—to ease the burden of those who are fighting the disease and those who live with and care for them. CST provides free nursing care, social work counseling, case management and other cancer related support services to people affected by cancer who live in lower Westchester. CST helps people of all socioeconomic backgrounds regardless of insurance coverage or ability to pay. In 2018, CST served 610 patients and their families making nearly 4,000 home visits, gave 820 rides to and from treatment and provided $33,000 in financial aid.
I’d like to help support CST’s important work. And for that I need your help. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to this worthy cause. You can make your donation to my fundraising effort right here on this website. Or, if you prefer to write a check, just let me know and I will get in touch with you directly.
Thank you very much for your support.
