HONORING 5 YEARS CANCER FREE WITH $100,000 LIFETIME FOR CANCER RESEARCH

March 8, 2017 was the first time my husband, Cal, and I heard “cancer.” This was one week after I learned I was pregnant. He had been dealing with chronic hip pain for over a year that he was trying to solve with physical therapy. A second opinion suggested getting an MRI that revealed Ewing's sarcoma (bone cancer) in his upper left femur.

Cal’s cancer could be treated with a standard of care that included 14 cycles of chemotherapy and a partial hip replacement to remove the tumor. We were very lucky to receive outstanding compassionate care at Dana-Farber. Many cancers however don’t have a set treatment plan and patients must rely on experimental treatment. If Cal’s cancer ever returned, he may have to rely on these experimental treatments.


2022 marks 5 years in remission, a very significant anniversary since the chances of recurrence are much less likely.  To honor this milestone I'm committed to reaching $100,000 lifetime fundraising and running 26.2 miles on April 18, 2022!

We are committed to supporting research at Dana-Farber because we can have a direct impact at addressing the root cause of this disease. 100% of your donation goes directly to cancer research.

THANK YOU for joining our support crew in our quest for the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.
