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

Three years ago, my then two-year-old daughter, Teaghan, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia; a cancer of the blood and bone marrow.  Following her diagnosis, she spent 44 days as an inpatient at Boston Children’s hospital, followed by two years of outpatient treatment at the Jimmy Fund at Dana Farber Cancer Institute.   

During those two years, Teaghan received 112 weeks of chemotherapy through her port, 203 days of steroids, 490 oral doses of chemotherapy that she needed to be woken up for each night, 60 painful intermuscular shots of chemotherapy that made her sick every single time, 19 spinal taps with intrathecal chemotherapy (which also made her sick), over 100 blood draws, and many other unpleasant medications and medical procedures. 

But today, Teaghan is thriving.  She just turned five, is getting ready to start Kindergarten in the Fall, and is three years cancer free.  Our family is hopeful that in two years, we can celebrate Teaghan being a survivor of this horrible disease.  Celebrating these milestones is only possible because of the amazing care we received at Dana Farber.    Dana Farber and the Jimmy Fund will forever be part of our family.

We have all been impacted by this disease. 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 patients and their families…like ours! 

Dana Farber is making a huge difference in cancer treatment; Teaghan is living proof.  But, there is still work to be done, cures to be found.  Please join me in the fight against cancer by making a contribution today.
