Cancer won't stop for COVID-19, so I won't stop walking for Dana-Farber!

I am participating in the 2020 Virtual Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world in which all cancers are preventable or can be detected and treated early-on.

My route for this, my 29th walk, will be a bit different this year: if public restrooms are considered safe by October 4th, I will do 26.2 miles looping around sidewalks and quiet side-streets without sidewalks in Wilbraham.  If there's no place to take a "bio-break", I'll plot a steep-for-me uphill and downhill loop near my house, with occasional forays into the hilly woods, and come up with 18-20 miles of walking and trekking.


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. 

I feel so lucky to know so many people who are living with cancer,  whose cancers have been eradicated or are in remission or who are continuing be treated, living full, productive lives with manageable side effects. Many of the treatments which have helped them were not available when I first started doing this walk, way back in 1990.  That’s pretty amazing! I feel so very lucky, too, that improved methods of detection have enabled both my husband and me to have assorted "lumps" removed before they became cancerous.  I also sadly remember folks for whom treatments were not available, and know that they would want research and treatment to continue to make life better for others.  You probably have some of these same lucky and sad feelings, too.  So, please "walk" with me by contributing on this fund-raising page.  As always, I will take the names of everyone who contributes, and those they honor and remember, with me: we will all be walking together on October 4th.

Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
