THE STORY:

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for the Manhattan Island Swim, a 28.5 mile circumnavigation of the island of Manhattan on August 1, 2015.  I'm honored to be 1 of 4 women out of the 19 swimmers that will be swimming on this date.  As part of the your donation, funds will be split to NYC Swim's charity of choice, Swim Free, and my charity, the Foundation for Women's Cancer (FWC). 

The Foundation for Women's Cancer is a very personal charity for me since I lost a dear friend to cancer in 2012.  Rachel was only 31 when she lost her courageous battle with cervical cancer. Throughout her fight, she became an advocate for FWC, an organization that seeks to increase awareness of and raise funds for research of gynecological cancers.  Money previously donated to FWC in memory of Rachel went to the publication of 10,000 educational brochures about what women need to know about cervical cancer.  Rachel's experience with cancer and how she kept strong, kind-hearted, and optimistic throughout has been an inspiration and a constant reminder throughout my training. 

FWC was established to shed light on cancers that are unique to women.  FWC is a 501 (c) (3) not for profit organization dedicated to funding research, training, and ensuring education and public awareness of gynecologic cancer prevention, early detection and optimal treatment.  FWC’s job is to build the knowledge base and give women and the broader community, crucial information to prevent, detect, treat and defeat gynecologic cancers. 

I’m honoring Rachel by doing something that she loved – swimming – and raising money for her chosen cause.  Thanks for your support and helping join the fight against women's cancer!

Michele
