I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
I am walking in support of my friend Gina.
I met Gina many years ago when our kids were small, like me she has three girls. Her youngest daughter Vanessa and Nora are the same age. Gina and I were GS leaders for many years together! Her first trip with cancer was when her oldest was in elementary school (breast) and then it came back about 9 years later. This time, her third trip and her cancer is sarcoma. She is always positive and upbeat and has been treated at Dana Farber since the beginning. She is finished with her radiation and just had surgery. When Maggie started working at Dana Farber she told us that Dana Farber holds a special place in her heart. Because she is so special to our family, and an unbelievable role model to all that know her I decided to walk in her honor. She is hoping to join me at the finish line in September.
When you make a gift to my walk, you’re directly supporting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge science and highly compassionate cancer care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
