Why I'm Walking with TEAM TODD to Fight Cancer

Team Todd is ready to hit the pavement in 2021! I am so excited to walk 26.2 miles again this year in the 2021 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way. Together, we will join together by taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.

When you make a gift to my walk, you’re directly supporting the laboratory of Todd's oncologist, Loren Walensky. Every cent raised by Team Todd goes to ensuring that Loren can hire the top scientists in the world, conduct cutting-edge research, and use the best equipment in his lab. Loren loved Todd and we love Loren. We know that every step we take helps Loren and his team fight cancer.  

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is known not just for its top notch science but also for its emphasis on deeply compassionate patient care. At Dana-Farber, Todd was never "just a number." His doctors, nurses, and support staff knew him (and knew him well), knew his likes and dislikes, and treated his family (us) like their own. Thanks to Todd and the friendships he made in the Jimmy Fund Clinic, we still count many of those who were on his team as our closest friends who are more like family.  

We miss Todd every single day. There is not a day that goes by that I don't wish he could have met my husband or his niece and nephews. So much life has happened in the last (almost) 19 years that he should have been here for. But in his absence, I know I need to fight to keep other siblings together longer. I can't bring my brother back but I can do everything in my power to help other sisters have their brothers in their lives for years to come.

Thank you for supporting Team Todd's fundraising efforts. Together, we can conquer cancer!
