I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
This year I am walking in honor of two important people in my life. Jill has been a friend since kindergarten who is fighting her third round of Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Jill is one of the kindest people you could be friends with that has a even bigger heart! Johnny is a four year old boy with neuroblastoma that has been fighting his entire life. He has been through more then most adults, never gives up and keeps on fighting with a smile on his face! Johnny is the true definition of a superhero. With Johnnys Dad being a firefighter and Jill’s husband being a police office both in Newton this hits close to home for many!
While concurring 26.2, I hope I am able to show just a fraction of the determination and strength these two have shown throughout the past few years.
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!
