Welcome to My Personal Page
I'm participating in Women Swimmin' to raise money for Hospicare & Palliative Care Services. The funds I raise will provide medical expertise and emotional, spiritual and practical support to patients and their families.
Last August, I made a major career change, leaving higher education fundraising for a position at Hospicare that inspires and humbles me every day.
We live in an incredible community, filled with people who care for one another in ways big and small. Hospicare is here for patients and their families during some of their scariest and most vulnerable moments, and we seek to support our friends and neighbors as they face serious and life-threatening illnesses and grief.
Since I am one of the organizers for this event, I can't join in the lake swim -- so I am proud to swim laps for Hospicare this year. My goal is to swim at least 37.9 miles between now and August! Why 37.9 miles? Our lake swimmers will swim 1.2 miles across Cayuga Lake on August 10. My goal is swim the LENGTH of the lake by then!
Your donation to Women Swimmin' for Hospicare will help make end-of-life care available to anyone in Tompkins or Cortland counties who needs it--regardless of their ability to pay. Your gift directly supports families, friends, and neighbors, and helps us become a community that can confidently say, "you are never alone."
My best friend of 30 years -- a woman I'd known since middle school -- died in 2017 after a long journey with brain cancer. Emily and her family benefited tremendously from the care, love, support and respect of hospice nurses and aides. The experience opened my eyes to just how incredible Hospicare's services and programs can be, and I feel honored to be able to swim to raise money that will assist our dedicated staff, nurses, aides, social workers, counselors, spiritual advisors, and counselors in their day-to-day work.
Thank you for your consideration of a gift to support my swim!
