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

I am raising money for Dana Farber so hopefully some day you won't have a reason to do it. So someday cancer will be a distant memory and no family will live with the sorrow and endless  emptiness of  devastating loss. If Cancer has touched your life you know how important research is to end this horrible disease.  

I walk to honor the memory of  my daughter Kassia, my only child, and my best friend. Fight Fierce is her team, her battle cry and her legacy. Nothing can soften the pain of her loss. She is my hero.

I walk to remember my mom, my student Katie, and my friends Liz, and George.

I walk in gratitude for the survivors: my husband  Stan, my niece Marcie, my brother- in -law Hal and my friends Jo and Tricia.

I walk because I can and so many can't.

I walk because Dana Farber is HOPE.

 

Please give whatever you can. Every dollar helps. Join our team. Walk with us or become a virtual walker.
