“I have also lost people I care for to cancer. The Jimmy Fund gives me hope that fewer people will suffer the hardships of cancer in the years ahead. COVID-19 has impacted our fundraising events but it hasn’t stopped cancer. Now more than ever, we need to band together to help raise funds to continue the mission. I hope you will consider joining us!”
