WHY WE'RE FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

I was diagnosed with leukemia in February 2014 and went thru over two years of intensive treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to eradicate that terrible disease from my body. It was by far the scariest time in my life but I made it to the other side, healthy and VERY grateful because of the doctors and nurses at the Institute. Truly the staff at Dana-Farber save lives every single day and I am living proof of the miracles of their efforts. That is why, every year since my diagnosis my family, friends and I walk in support of this incredible organization.  

The past three years, I have led my own team called “Neuk the Leuk,” – a phrase I used quite often as motivation while in treatment. Our team is raising funds specifically for the ground-breaking research that my main oncologist, Dr. Daniel DeAngelo, and his team are conducting to find cures for the many kinds of blood cancers that are currently without successful treatment plans. Although I was lucky to have a treatment plan that worked, only 61% of patients diagnosed with leukemia survive 5 years past diagnosis. Every dollar donated to our team will go directly towards the research needed to close that gap—and I can assure you that Dr. D will put the dollars to good use. As proof of his abilities, he led the team of scientists that discovered the exact treatment regimen that I followed and that ultimately, saved my life. There’s not a doubt in my mind that he can do it again… but he needs the community’s help to receive the financial support needed to conduct such research.

On October 4, 2020, Team Neuk the Leuk will walk various distances along the Boston Marathon route in honor of all those who have, are and will be affected by cancer. We would absolutely LOVE to have you on our team -- whether that means walking a 5K, 10K, half marathon, marathon or even a virtual walker! There's an option for everyone and it is always just an incredibly fun and inspiring day! 

We've all been affected by cancer in someway, this is a chance to give back and help future generations. JOIN TODAY!
