After my diagnosis of stage III colon cancer at age 38. I knew right away I wanted to give back and help others dealing with this disease. After researching charities and groups in the area we decided to put our efforts towards the hospital that has treated me and my family with nothing but passionate care and hope, Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
Each year we walk in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk and raise money for the Colorectal Cancer department at Dana Farber. Now in 2018, I continue to fight this disease that has advanced and put me back into treatment. We hope that this year is our best in fundraising year yet and we can continue to teach my daughter to help others and be grateful for the help we have received.
As long as our team raises over $10,000 I will work with my oncologist to direct the funds to a specific group or initiative that we agree on. It's nice to see all the money go to something you can actually see and experience. For two years in a row I've seen it with my own eyes and that is truly rewarding. Thank you for helping our family and so many others!
Thank you for supporting our team in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer and stay BushyStrong!
