About me

Gender Male
Location Shreveport, Louisiana
Introduction On March 5, 2009 my grandfather, Mr. Edgar Jean, passed away of complications from liver cancer. He battled the disease for almost two years. As a recreational swimmer, I am attempting to swim 3,000 for five days or 15,000 yards total during the week of March 26 - 30, 2012 in honor of the 3rd anniversary of his passing. While training to swim this distance, I will also be focused on personally raising $4,000 for the American Cancer Society to support cancer research. As I move forward with this goal, I am also aiming to raise a grand total of $10,000 by finding businesses and organizations who will match the total funds that I raise for this project.
Interests Support Cancer Research, Raise Awareness specifically for Liver Cancer, Raise Awareness of the Benefits of Swimming as a form of Exercise, Promote Healthy Lifestyles
