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

This year I will participate in my 13th Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk, and take steps to change the odds for patients facing cancer, for my son and in memory of Dad. Thirteen is my Memere’s lucky number – and she is 102 so she knows a thing a two about lucky numbers.

My son is celebrating 13 AMAZING years off treatment this coming fall and we are very blessed to be so lucky. I walk because every step is a step for finding better treatment options and possibly a cure for Pediatric Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumors (AT/RT) Brain Tumors. I walk for all our friends who are battling cancer and for those that have angel wings. I walk because I love my son and want him to live a long life. I walk because I miss my Dad, and all the the years of training walks and JFW walks we shared together. I walk because I'm mad cancer took my Dad, took my dog, affects my son, affects my husband (skin), and took nd affects so many friends and family. We need continued research to help others. Please support my walk.

Please consider donating one dollar for each of the below items that are a part of Declan's life:

  • MRIs - $32 (as of Dec 2019)
  • Radiation treatments - $30
