Michelle M. Farnsworth Memorial Swim Event
Michelle Farnsworth
In March of 2014 as a freshman in high school, 15 year old Michelle Farnsworth's life took an unexpected turn when she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS), a rare muscle tissue cancer. She grew up in Leominster, MA and always had a positive outlook on life. She had a passion for sports and loved field hockey and swimming. 
Michelle was a fighter. Only months after being diagnosed, the tumor had decreased 70% which gave everyone so much hope and optimism. With the love and support she received from family, friends and her community, her spirits were always kept high. She fought her battle as best she could but sadly passed away at home on January 13, 2015.
This year, Michelle would have celebrated her 18th birthday.  At Compassion Massage, we pause to reflect on Michelle and her life.  We encourage you to join us at her Miles4Michelle swim event to help keep her memory alive. 

Miles4Michelle on July 22!
Compassion Massage has been honored to attend Miles4Michelle since 2014. Our therapists will participate by providing Sports massage for the swimmers who will swim the extra mile to raise money for the Michelle M. Farnsworth Scholarship Fund. 

This event will be held on Saturday, July 22nd at Fort Pond in Lancaster, MA. Look for us at Camp Lowe! 

The Worcester Area Master's will begin their swim at 9am and college/club swimmers will begin at 9:30am.  We hope to see you there!
