My Sister was diagnosed with ovarian cancer about 12 years ago. Fortunately for her she was diagnosed with her cancer when it was in stage 2. After her surgery and chemo she has been cancer free now for 11 years. Also, I started long distance swimming 2 years ago, last year I was able to complete a 2.5 open water swim and thus far this year I'm able to continue to get stronger with my swimming. I haven't completed the 6 mile distance yet, but I believe that challenges will only make me stronger. In addition, I am retired Navy Veteran with 25 years of service and will dedicate this swim the fallen and wounded service members. Plus I turned 62 last October and feel that swimming is one way that I'm able to add quality life to my years and add years to my life.
