For over 13 years, I have walked The Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. It started in memory of my Nana, losing her at 8 yrs old has made me want to make a difference and fight to battle cancer for others.
However, this years walk is specially dedicated to my Aunt Marie who sadly lost her fight with cancer this past July 20th. She was a feisty one, and kicked cancer's butt in the past but unfortunately this last round was a tough battle.
Cancer effects everyone and its not going away, but we can definitely fight it, we can create treatments, and we can support those who are faced with it.
Those that are diagnosed, need you....those who unfortunately will hear the dreaded 3 little words of "you have cancer", need you. Those children living their childhood in a hospital, need you.
Please think about it.
