I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk because each time I set up this page, I want to look for a new picture of my mother - but there aren't any. Cancer took her from me nine years ago. Her treatments at Dana Farber allowed her to see me graduate from college, but she didn't get to watch me do what she always said I should do: graduate from law school and be a lawyer. The available medicine wasn't enough.
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. Their ultimate finish line is a world without cancer, but they can't get there without help.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer.
