This site is dedicated to showing my love of swimming and my love of family. Somehow I managed to combine the two! If you want to learn more about what this means, please click on the link below, it will take you to a donation webpage for FARA (Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance). On it I explain more about what this disease is and how it affects my family. In late 2012, I decided to use my swimming to raise general awareness about Friedreich’s Ataxia, since then I have completed numerous open water marathon swims and plan to complete many more. Please share my story with your friends and family, and if you can – donate to FARA. Research is our only hope for a cure.
