I walk in support of my husband, Pete, who continues to battle mediastinal large b cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Pete continues to amaze me with his positive attitude, even over the past very difficult year of treatment. He continues to treat at Dana Farber, and more than ever we have experienced the wonderful, compassionate 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, including my cousin who passed away early this year from glioblastoma.
In 2018, Team Hope was a top Team raising $13,070.00. Walk day has become one of our favorite days of the year. Through the Jimmy Fund Walk, we have met so many people, whether they were part of the walk staff, walkers or volunteers. I am truly proud of Team Hope and am looking to beat our total fundraising from last year. If you can donate any amount, even $5, it will help towards our goal. I appreciate all of your support over the last ten years.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
