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

By participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, our team is making every step count toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!

We call our team BRCA1 Strong because many members of our Lynch family have the BRCA1 mutation, which means that we are more susceptible to both breast and ovarian cancers. Paula Lynch Keogh and sister June Lynch Black are both breast cancer survivors and all four of our daughters tested positive for the mutation. Paula's daughter Sarah was diagnosed with breast cancer at 33, before her daughter MacKenzie was even born. And "Mack" is truly a miracle child, as Sarah was told that her high dose chemo would make her sterile!

And the Dana Farber Cancer Institute has done so much for our family -- and for the thousands of other patients young and old who rely on the expertise of its medical staff, researchers, and other clinicians who toil day in and out to find a cure for cancer.

Your support goes directly to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge science and highly compassionate care. Funds raised through the Jimmy Fund Walk enable Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families. And when you walk the Boston Marathon route, you meet many of these patients and family members who walk along with you.

We hope you will consider 1) joining our team for the walk on Sunday, September 22 in Boston, 2) becoming a "virtual" member of the team soliciting friends and colleagues to support our efforts through Facebook posts and emails, or 3) making your own donation to our team today! [And if your employer does matching gifts, be sure you get their support as well!]

Thank you for supporting our team in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk.  

Together, we can conquer cancer!
