For me, the motivation for this year’s walk is all about the moms. The moms who have battled and those battling now. ALL are warriors. Their journeys aren’t easy, sometimes its terrifying, most times it’s just awful. But they endure because these women are stronger than most of us will ever know. Mary Eilen. Carol. Kim. Sue. Debs. Eleanor. Nadine. And, of course, my friend who teaches me so much, Laura. These are just some of the amazing women I’ll think about when I train and when I walk.
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 compassionate patient 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 walk this year. For the moms….and always for our team’s guiding light, Susan Pernice.
Together, we can conquer cancer! F-Cancer!
