Maura Sanderoff

Maura Sanderoff is a Survivor and someone who has deep ties to the Deep South.

I was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) at age 16 (long time ago 44 years) and thankfully survived all the treatments but did have to have my leg amputated. My love for the sea and swimming never faltered. As I grew up in Simon’s Town and both my father and father-in-law were buried at sea off False Bay, I somehow feel so connected to Cape Point so it’s a dream I am able to attempt this swim at my grand age of 60!
