Team Todd is BACK and we are ready to have our best fundraising year EVER! As we prepare (with great excitement!) to return to the famed Boston Marathon route, we are thrilled to see our Jimmy Fund Walk family! Because that's exactly what this Walk represents - family. No one faces cancer alone. Todd's family and friends rallied around him every step of the way. Our hope is that every person who walks through the Dana-Farber doors knows that they are never alone. WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.
Team Todd was started by my mom when my younger brother, Todd Schwartz, was in his fight against cancer. That first year, he cheered her on every step of the way as she walked all 26.2 miles. We wish we had Todd walking beside us every single day. We know he'd be so proud of my mom for continuing his legacy of kindness, love, and strength in the face of adversity. As I walk all 26.2 miles again this year, I will be thinking of Todd every step of the way in hopes that I am making him proud.
When you make a gift to my Walk, you’re directly supporting the cutting-edge research done by Todd's oncologist, Loren Walensky. The lab that Loren has built has given people the chance to see cancer in the rearview mirror. We proudly support Loren and the work done by him and his team to keep families whole, keep siblings together, and to create hope for generations to come. Every cent donated to Team Todd goes directly to the Walensky Laboratory at Dana-Farber to enhance research, programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.
Thank you for supporting Team Todd's fundraising efforts. Together, we can conquer cancer and honor my amazing brother who I miss every day.
