I have been a part of the Jimmy Fund walk family for the past 7 years, and each year I am reminded of how crucial fundraising can be. But this year, cancer has hit home, and it hit hard! I have 3 family and friends fighting, which is 3 people too many. I have lost dozens (you read that right!) to this disease; and I am hopeful that one day those numbers do not become a reality for someone else.
Your generous support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families. I can tell you first hand the level of care that Dana-Farber provides to their patients and families is out of this world. Service this good does not come without a cost, and we must help them continue., so one day, this awful disease will have a solid cure.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
