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

 

17 years ago, the year my friend, William Kraft, lost his courageous battle with cancer, I decided to participate in the Jimmy Fund Walk and have been walking every year since! It is hard to believe William has been gone for so long. On September 22, 2019, the participants of the 28th annual Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk will take steps to change the odds for patients facing cancer. In 2002, after suffering several bouts of cancer, William walked the entire 26.2 miles to raise money for the Jimmy Fund. In February 2003, only 5 months after that walk, he lost his courageous battle with cancer. Now another year has gone by and the list of those loved ones we have all lost to cancer grows. Some have beaten it, and some continue to fight. We must keep going to find a cure. The loss of my wonderful, strong friend, William; my beloved Dad, Karl C. Brett; my friend, Leslie; my dear friends, Liz and Irma, my special friend’s son, Joshua and 6-year old Devin Suau…I walk in their memory and in hope of a cure, so my friends and everyone fighting the fight will survive!! And, 2 years ago, I added myself to the list of those affected. I had a small bout with breast cancer, in June, 2017, and am lucky to be doing fine. Please, once again, support me and my team…this is essential. I hope to do my walk from Boston College. But, I am not sure, as I broke my foot in July. I am healing, but have several more weeks to go. My daughter and her husband and my 2 grand children will participate in the walk again this year. I am so proud of them. We MUST find a cure. I thank you with all my heart. Go to this link to get directly to my page: http://danafarber.jimmyfund.org/goto/SMyerson
