WALKING TO RELIEVE THE BURDEN OF DISEASE

I am participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.

I am a stage IV rectal cancer survivor.  I hope to be 6 years N.E.D. come October 2nd.  Walking was the yardstick of my recovery - initially a couple of steps from my hospital bed to my hospital room chair after emergency surgery in 2015, to a half marathon for my first Jimmy Fund Walk in 2016.  Since then, I have walked the full marathon distance to celebrate my survival, honor my extraordinary care team, and relieve the burden of this disease for all those impacted.  I walk because I still can, and for all those who cannot.

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!
