I am participating in the 2018 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
I walk in memory of my sister in law, Kassia Smith who created team Fight Fierce in 2013 as a way to give back to DFCI while being treated for Ovarian Cancer. I also walk in memory of my brother in law Peter Mirick who was also treated at DFCI. Sadly, we lost both Kassia and Peter in 2016, but I am committed to continue to Fight Fierce on their behalf, as well as for the countless others who have, are currently, or someday will be faced with a cancer diagnosis.
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 pediatric and adult patients and their families.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
