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

Dear Friends and Family:

Thank you for visiting our Jimmy Fund Walk Page.

Inspired by his patients, Dr. Nissim, MD, PhD, is a physician-scientist seeking to pioneer new strategies to intercept and treat pancreatic cancer. This year, over 47,000 individuals in the U.S. will die of pancreatic cancer. Imagine a medicine that can prevent pancreatic cancer from ever forming. The Nissim Lab strives to make that vision a reality.

In his DFCI clinic, Dr. Nissim has identified families with multiple cases of pancreatic cancer that are suspicious for a hereditary cause. In the lab, his research team analyzes the genomes of these families in hopes of discovering the culprit genes. Findings from each patient family help to uncover precious insights into why pancreatic cancer happens and how we might prevent it. Building on these discoveries, the Nissim Lab is designing new approaches to target pancreatic cancer. Learn more about our work at nissimlab.org.

By participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk, our team is making every step count toward the ultimate finish line: a world without pancreatic cancer.

Your contributions will directly go towards pancreatic cancer research in the Nissim Lab.

Thank you for supporting our team in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can and will conquer pancreatic cancer!

Sincerely,

The Nissim Lab
