Conquer cancer with the Jimmy Fund Walk!
Conquer cancer with the Jimmy Fund Walk!


Subject: Support My Jimmy Fund Walk

It is true, that most everybody has been affected by cancer. It’s a terrible disease that leaves people and families heartbroken. We all
have memories of loved ones and friends that we have consoled during times of treatment and loss. Unfortunately, the heart break and emotional trauma caused by cancer isn’t going away any time soon.   We as a people must strive to find a cure, so that one day cancer will not be the death-sentence that it is today

On Sunday, September 22nd, I will lace up my sneakers to walk along the famed Boston Marathon® route in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai!

I’ve lost a mother, brother, uncle, niece and just way too many friends to this disease.  So, I feel compelled to do something. We need to get away from the utter hopelessness experienced with the diagnosis, to somewhere, where there are possibilities, possibilities for a cure as well as improved and sustained compassionate care. 

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 patients and their families.

Please follow the links to my Jimmy Fund Walk web page and make a donation.   The page allows you to donate in memory of someone special that you’ve lost, or someone you’re close to who may be fighting the disease. Every little bit helps. Let’s beat this disease once and for all.

Please join me in the fight against cancer by considering a contribution of $50.00 or more (or less) toward my fundraising efforts.
