I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, walking in memory of my best friend, Riley Bridget Fessenden.
Riley is a sister, daughter, friend, cheerleader and hero to so many. She battled cancer for three years spending every week at Boston Children's Hospital and The Jimmy Fund Clinic/Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. I watched as every single staff member worked to make Riley's experience as positive as possible. From glittery jewelry box decorating kits in the waiting room to the doctors playing Taylor Swift during her radiation treatments, Riley was excited to take me to the hospital and show me all of the fun things she could do. Riley passed away in 2016, at the age of nine and I will continue to fight this battle against childhood cancer for Riley and children who are fighting the same battles.
