WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT OVARIAN CANCER

It is that time of year when I lace up my sneakers and hit the pavement for the 31st Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk and Ovarian Cancer Research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. On September 22, 2019.  I will celebrate 28 years of walking and 23 years going all 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to Boston. 

As all you loyal supporters know I walk for my father who got me hooked on the walk and was actually on the original committee who began what is now the largest one day walk in the country!!  But what has kept me loyal are the 3 women (Patricia Franchi Flaherty, Barbara Levine, and Mary Sayles) who I promised days before they lost their battle that I would continue their mission for raising money for research and a cure for this horrific disease. About 22,440 women will receive a new diagnosis of ovarian cancer and about 14,080 will die. There are no early detection tests for this killer.          

         As Captain of The Ovarian Cancer Brigade I will walk 26.2 miles with a group of warriors who have been affected by this deadly disease. They consist of patients, survivors, caretakers and people who have lost a loved one.

Each and every donation goes Dana Farber Cancer Institute to help find tests for early detection and a cure for ovarian cancer. The Ovarian Cancer Brigade has raised over $480K in the past 6 years thanks to people like you who contributed to our efforts. Great strides have been made, let’s keep them moving so no family has to endure the loss of a loved one.  Whatever you can give is always greatly appreciated!!
