No wetsuit, no cage, just a Speedo between my lanky 5’10” frame and the least explored place on earth: the Ocean.


Who? Me, Alli DeFrancesco. NYU alum and post-BMT Hodgkin’s Lymphoma survivor.

What? Marathon swimming and some…

Why? In memory of Lauren Kyle Beam (1976-2011) and to help change the face of young adult cancer in support of First Descents.
