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

I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!

I am fighting the fight on a new clinical trial! As you know, I was diagnosed with Stage IV Renal Cell Carcinoma on Marathon Monday 2014. I cannot believe it has been over 5 years. I was able to stay on Sutent for 4 ½ years and then unfortunately I had greater than 20 % tumor progression earlier this year. I am now on an immunotherapy clinical trial of nivolumimab/ipilumimab combination. I am tolerating these agents well. I have CT scans on July 15 and that will indicate if I am responding to these drugs. I am so thankful to the Dana Farber and all they have done for me.  Thanks to all of your support I am giving it a good fight. Our dollars donated go directly to the medical team at Dana Farber, the Genitourinary Cancer Center team at Dana-Farber led by Dr. Toni Choueiri, who are caring for me. Their research and care is making a difference for so many patients.

Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
