I finished my 27th walk for Dana-Farber!!
I finished my 27th walk for Dana-Farber!!

Many thanks to all my contributors!!

Many thanks to everyone who has donated on my fund-raising page! Together, we've raised nearly $4,000 so far! If you know anyone else who would like to contribute, this page will be open until Oct. 31.

Your gifts directly support 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. 

As in past years, the mile-markers along the route have pictures of children and adults who have been successfully treated at Dana-Farber.  For the past two years, a few of those children and adults were standing right next to their pictures. It gives me a very special feeling to meet these patients and know that our donations have supported them regaining their health!!

I really enjoyed the walk again this year and was lucky to have perfect walking weather: I made it to the finish line with only one blister. And continuing in this marvelous journey of "philanthropic fitness", I will soon be doing my 3-4 milers in town again to start preparation for my 28th (!!) walk in 2019.

As always, I took the names of those who donate and those whom they honor and remember with me on the day of the walk: you were all walking with me! I could not have done it without you!  And as always, I'll was walking in memory of my Mom and Ray's Mom, who fought and endured cancer with bravery and dignity, and in memory of my Dad, who loved to walk.

Thanks soooooo much!!!!!!
