When I was 9 I lost my Nono to cancer. He was my best friend and my life changed the moment I heard he had cancer. Since that time, I have held bake sales, shaved my head, participated in walks, and collected cans to raise money for research and patient care. Anyone that knows me knows that I am committed to finding a cure for cancer as well as better treatment for cancer patients. Therefore I will once again participate as a member of Team Tara in the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, to take steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
When you make a gift to my walk, you’re directly supporting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge science and highly compassionate cancer 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 participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
