Support Carolyn!

On June 7, I will be swimming from Alcatraz to the shore in San Francisco to raise money for the American Cancer Society.  Why am I voluntarily swimming in freezing cold shark-infested water?  Because I have to do something to help in the battle against cancer.  I lost my Dad to cancer in 2002, and my Mom continues to give her best in a fight against ovarian cancer.  I have seen other family members and friends battle against cancer.  I have to do something because I want to help find a cure to this horrible disease. 

I am asking for your help - this swim will be very physically and emotionally challenging for me.  Please donate any amount that you can - we have all been affected by cancer in our lives. 

When I participated in this swim in 2007, I raised over $10,000 in memory of my Dad.  This year, my goal is to raise even more in honor of my Mom. 

Please help me!  I hope you will support my effort by clicking on one of the buttons above!
