Why We Swim: Team Larissa’s Crew

Team “Larissa’s Crew” is swimming in honor of Larissa Jean Dhanani. Larissa is currently battling Acute Lymphomcytic Leukemia and on April 19, 2011, she received an extremely successful bone marrow transplant, thanks to an experimental protocol done with research funded by the Swim Across America. Larissa’s exceptional care and treatment provided by the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance has inspired us to give back to our community. Larissa is a truly inspiring woman and a very close friend and relative to all of us swimming in last year’s Swim Across America in Seattle, WA. Larissa is living proof that the funds raised through the Swim Across America directly affect the outcomes of those battling cancer.
