I am participating in the 2018 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer! This will be my 9th Year walking with our team, Team Hope.
I walk in support of my husband, Pete, who is battling mediastinal large b cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Pete's treatment has been transferred to Dana Farber, and now we have personally seen and experienced the wonderful staff that DFCI has.
I also walk in memory of my parents, in support of my sister in law, my dearest friend, my aunt, my uncle as well as so many other family and close friends fighting this terrible disease or have lost their battles.
My personal goal this year is to become a two star Pacesetter for the 2nd time by raising at least $2,500.00. I really hope you will help me reach my goal.
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 so much for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
