On October 1, 2023, I am participating in the 2023 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, my 6th Consecutive Jimmy Fund Walk...taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.
My mother lost her two year battle to colon cancer when I was 14 years old...she was 47 years young. My youngest of four children turned 14 this past September. 14 is an age I will NEVER forget...and neither will my Jimmy Fund hero, Nick Gaspar, seen in photo above! Nick was diagnosed with a Teratoma tumor in his brain, both benign and malignant in his particular case in May 2021. . He has been fighting his battle with radiation, chemo, stem cell transplants...a craniotomy...and an unclean scan of his spine in March 2022. Nick is the strongest young man I know...and I will continue to be Nick Strong and Fight for a CURE for him and MANY others!
When you make a gift to my Walk, you’re directly supporting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge research and compassionate patient care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can defy cancer! I appreciate your unconditional LOVE...ALWAYS!
