My cousin BJ and I are swimming to honor the memory of Dolores (Dee) Hendrix, BJ's grandmother (Mema) and my cousin. A longtime resident of Trumansburg, NY, Mema was a warm, selfless, caring woman who was always willing to lend a helping hand to others.
We are also swimming to honor Mema's love of life, her generosity of spirit, her positive attitude, her strength, and her contagious laugh. BJ and I have formed a team because we know that together we can raise more money to support Hospicare & Palliative Care Services. The funds we raise will provide medical expertise and emotional, spiritual, and practical support to patients and their families.
