3-time cancer survivor laps me in the pool

Check out this video. I met this woman at the pool yesterday. She was swimming so fast and furious that I had to talk to her to tell her what an amazing swimmer she is and find out what she was training for. You don't swim that fast and furious without a goal. Turns out that she is an event coordinator for the San Francisco event of Swim Across America and is doing a New York Swim Across America event next weekend. Swim Across America is a group that raises money for cancer research. She is a competitive swimmer who was hit three times with three different kinds of cancers! I will never complain again or lament early stage breast cancer. This woman is simply inspiring. The 6 minute video is worth watching. You'll have to copy and paste it in your brower.
