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

My journey to walking in the Jimmy Fund Walk has been a long and winding one. When I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in May 2015, I had no idea what the future would hold for me. Nine years later, I’m overjoyed to share that I remain in remission after completing over two years of treatment at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

There were times when my treatment was extremely difficult, but through all the scary and stressful moments, I knew I always had the exceptional care and support of my wonderful medical team. They continuously showed the utmost dedication and compassion to me and my family, and they were with us every step of the way as I battled my illness. 

Throughout my time there, I was treated with respect, kindness, and empathy by all of the support staff and Dana-Farber employees that I interacted with along the way. If you can have luck in a horrible situation, I feel extremely lucky and fortunate that I was able to be treated at Dana-Farber. Years later, I continue to have a resource in the amazing team at Dana-Farber and I’m extremely grateful.

 2017 was the first year I participated in the Jimmy Fund Walk, and it was an amazing day full of joy and hope, and it felt great to be able to celebrate completing my treatment with my family and friends and to give something back to a wonderful organization that has helped so many people and given so much to me. I’ve been walking every year since, and I can’t wait to participate this year for the 8th time with my team, the Acute Lymphomaniacs.

I know that most of us have been affected by cancer in some capacity, whether directly or indirectly. Raising money for cancer centers like Dana-Farber that excel in both groundbreaking research and world-class patient care is a wonderful way to contribute to the goal of a tomorrow without cancer.
