Jackie Swims for Roswell!!
Twenty years ago, only 60% of children survived their disease. Today, more than 80% of children with cancer survive their disease and go on to lead productive adult lives. But, the fight is not over until there are 100% cure rates for all pediatric cancers because approximately 12,400 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer in the United States each year.

I will dive into Lake Erie on Sunday morning, August 15, 2010 to make a splash for childhood cancer cures! Carly's Crossing is a unique (very cold!!!) open-water swim event to raise money for pediatric cancer research and patient support program through Carly's Club at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, one of the nation’s top comprehensive cancer centers.

The money I raise will help researchers and physicians better understand the causes of childhood cancers and discover new methods of prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Donations also fund support programs such as holiday parties, game nights, spa parties, and more that will help meet the emotional and social needs of Roswell Park’s youngest patients.

Please support me as generously as possible, as I swim on behalf of Carly's Club. Just click on the "Donate" button above the thermometer to make a donation.

(If you'd rather donate by check, please include my name in the memo area and send to: Carly's Crossing 2010, PO Box 644, Buffalo, NY 14240-0644.)
