long story short, my attempt to swim the English Channel this year was blown out. all two weeks in England were spent waiting out a gale storm and praying the weather would become favorable. however, it was a huge learning experience and I have a lot to be excited about. for starters, I already have another date set for August. funds raised have also allowed me to not only save my boat fees for next year, but donate $2,000 to First Descents.
when I first committed myself to doing something momentously positive, I’m not sure I actually believed I was capable. but one year later, the door has only just been opened and all of this could not have been accomplished without you. so from the bottom of heart, thank you for all of your kind words of encouragement and support. home safe and playing catch-up, but working to put the full story here, on my blog, soon. remember, cancer affects everyone and we’re in this battle together. a little faith goes a long way.
