I'm Swimmin' for Hospicare! Please help.

I'm swimming across Cayuga Lake again this year to raise money for Hospicare and Palliative Care Services. I'm swimming in memory of my uncle, Fred Barnes, and my sister-in-law, Cathy Bossard. Even though we lost both of them far too soon, hospice enabled them to live out their days with dignity and autonomy, in the places that meant the most to them.

I felt Fred with me when I swam the lake last year. He loved being on the water- especially teaching his nieces and nephews how to waterski. His camp on Cayuta Lake was his sanctuary, the place he felt most at peace, and thanks to hospice, he was able to die there as well. The home Cathy designed and had built for her was one of her greatest achievements. It meant so much for her to spend her final days in the place she loved so much and was so proud of.

Im swimming so that everyone who needs it can benefit from the essential services Hospicare provides. Every gift- no matter how small the amount- is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for supporting me in this effort, helping me reach my fundraising goal, and ensuring that hospice and palliative care services are available for all in our area. Click the "Give Now" button in the top right corner to support my swim.
