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

      We are walking to honor the memory of our youngest daughter, Abby, who lost her battle to osteosarcoma in 2019 at the age of 9.

She was a very energetic, funny, creative, loving, and caring young lady.   Someone, whose humor and bravery made more of an impact on others in her 9 years than some make their entire lives.  

Abby was often more concerned for the feelings of others than she was of her own. Always worried about how her friends and family were feeling and never wanting them to be sad. Despite what she was going through she was often the "light" in the room cheering everyone around her up.

​To say she is missed simply doesn't do the sentiment justice. 

While there is nothing that makes Abby's loss easier, we feel there is no better way to honor her memory than to remain engaged with the amazing team at Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund, giving back where we can and help other children who are suffering.

It would definitely make Abby smile to help others!


By participating in the 2021 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, our team is making every step count toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!

Your support goes directly to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge science and compassionate patient 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.

Thank you for supporting our team in the Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
