Swim Across America Offers Swim Lessons to Cancer Survivors

Olympian Cammile Adams is an ambassador for our Swim Across America–Houston charity swim. She is also a swim school owner operating five SafeSplash and SwimLabs schools in greater Houston.

With quarantine and social distancing to prevent COVID-19, the opportunity for cancer survivors to swim and support Swim Across America has been greatly reduced. Cancer survivors need to be especially aware of their surroundings so being able to swim, or learn to swim, in a safe and clean environment is necessary.

Swim Across America and Cam have teamed up to offer lessons to cancer survivors in the Houston area. The first survivor to receive a lesson is Adam Schoen. Adam, married to wife Claire and father to son Theo (3-years old) and daughter Halle (2-months old), is a brain cancer survivor. He was treated at MD Anderson, beneficiary for Swim Across America-Houston. Adam shares his story on his personal page.

“I love teaching,” said Cam. “This is a wonderful opportunity for me to help Adam and other cancer survivors.”
