Blow Cancer Out of the Water!

Welcome to our team page.  We formed this team and are jumping into the frigid waters of Resurrection Bay because cancer has touched all of our lives.  Cancer has taken and affected too many of our family and friends and this is how we're fighting back!  Living in Alaska and being diagnosed with cancer can create some unique obstacles.  There are a lot of cancer patients in Alaska that have to fly to get to treatment and depending on the type of treatment, they may need to be away from home for days, weeks or even months.  The funds we raise for the American Cancer Society provide programs that give patients access to free flights to treatment, free or reduced rate hotel stays during treatment and also free rides to and from treatment.  Donations are also used to provide patients with access to our Gift Closet.  Here patients can get wigs, hats, scarves, breast prosthetics and mastectomy bras all free of charge.   Funds raised are also used to fund grounbreaking research!  The American Cancer Society is the second highest funder of cancer research, second only to the federal government.  I am a breast cancer survivor and I am currently taking an oral chemotherapy drug that is helping to keep my cancer from coming back.  That drug was created by research funded by the American Cancer Society.  Please donate what you can and help us Blow Cancer Out of the Water!

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.  

Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
