This will be my 27th year walking in memory of my son, Jason. I walk with the hope that the money I raise will prevent others from the heartache of losing a loved one.
Jason was an amazing child who was way beyond his years. He was kind, gentle, sensitive, and courageous. He lost his battle with cancer at the age of 12.
I wonder who he would be today; if he would be married with children, what he would look like, and what field he would work in. I wonder if he would follow his love for sports, his love for music, or a field that required someone who was kind, giving and thoughtful. What I do know is that he would continue to love his siblings, his parents, his Nanny, his aunts and uncle and his many cousins. He would have grieved the loss of his grandfathers and his uncle and others that he loved. He would have loved to meet his nephews and his niece, his cousins, along with the rest of his growing family he never got the opportunity to know. He would have been a kind and loving adult, just as he was when he was a child.
Over the years, I have seen great improvements in cancer treatments and patient care. Children who were diagnosed with Neuroblastoma today have a much higher survival rate now than they did when Jason was diagnosed.
Please support my efforts so no other parent has to wonder who their child would be as an adult. Your support will help to keep the improvements coming so one day a cure can be found.
Thank you for supporting me in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
