I am walking for the second year in a row in honor of my five year old daughter, Maddie. At just three years old, Maddie was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. After a five week stay at Boston Children's Hospital, Maddie achieved remission however her treatment did not end there. For the past two years, Maddie has continued her treatment at the Jimmy Fund clinic. Clinic has become a second home to Maddie and a place she looks forward to going to. We could not be more grateful for the world class medical care and team that our Maddie has access to.
I am participating in the 2018 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
