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

Jimmy Fund-Why I walk

When I was 5, my grandmother died of bone cancer. Here is what the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation says today: “Continuing research has greatly improved the prognosis — or predicted course of the disease — for multiple myeloma patients. Though there are many factors that affect prognosis, multiple myeloma can be a manageable disease.

When I was in college my great-uncle died of colon cancer. We all know that colon cancer, when found early enough, is treatable. That is why we have colonoscopies. Again, they found that out through research.

I walk for the heroes, both the survivors and those who didn’t survive. I walk for those who fought and who went through treatments that might have been experimental or proven because they went through a lot of pain and agony not only with the hopes of survival but with the knowledge that they were helping the research so others might survive after.

In the 12 years that I have raised funds for the Jimmy Fund, I have seen the technology grow so they can target cancers based upon the DNA of that cancer. I have had friends and family survive different cancers and I have lost many to cancer.

Please help me raise funds for the Jimmy Fund so they can create better treatments.

Thank you,

Lori
