WHY I WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

"Though she be but little, she is fierce."

I had never heard this Shakespearean quote before.  I guess I should've paid more attention in high school English class.  This quote became our rallying cry during Teaghan's battle with cancer.  A family member had sent us this quote in a frame, and we hung it on our door at the hospital.  Even today, Teaghan has this quote hung all over her bedroom.  She is the epitome of this phrase.

I was also given a mantra bracelet with this quote.  I wear it every day.  It reminds me that no matter how bad I think my day is, I've seen worse, because I've seen my 2 year old daughter fight cancer.  

I walk for Teaghan.  I walk for the families we met on our journey.  I walk for family and friends who have been touched by this disease.  I walk because for the last 30 years of the Jimmy Fund Walk others have participated, and because of them I now have a healthy, thriving 6 year old.  I walk because walking saves lives.  

Please join me in taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!   Please consider making a donation today!

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.
