Help Me Fight Cancer!
Team Rock the Black and Gold 2.0 is back for another exciting year of fighting cancer through open water swimming. This year my friend Chris Willey and I are heading up the team.
If you're unfamiliar with the event, the Swim Across the Sound is a four- to six-person relay swim from Port Jefferson, Long Island, to Bridgeport, Connecticut. The event supports St. Vincent's Hospital's Cancer Center by both funding cancer-screening outreach and providing direct financial stability to families suffering from the effects of cancer and its treatment.
This cause is important to me because cancer pretty much wiped out my family. My mother died as a direct result of cancer. My grandparents did, too. Even my father got cancer, though he survived. Still, I became the patriach of my family at age 35 because of cancer. It's hit me hard, and it's hit the members of my team hard. It sucks.
Thank you in advance for your support! It really means a lot to me.
