WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

On September 22, I'll be participating in my 8th Jimmy Fund Walk to raise money for the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber in Boston. They are two amazing organizations that I hold close to my heart. My daughter, Leah, was diagnosed with adrenocortical carcinoma in her junior year of high school, two weeks after she turned 17. She fought a very brave and challenging battle over 2 1/2 years, where she underwent 14 surgeries, 14 rounds of intense chemotherapy and 60 radiation treatments, and these two organizations supported and sustained her throughout her fight. Devastatingly, in November of 2012, Leah lost her battle with cancer, but her positive spirit, strength, compassion for others and beautiful soul live on in Jimmy Fund interviews, photos and in the many thousands of people she inspired during her lifetime.

Below is the link to a video of an interview that she did with John Dennis and Gerry Callahan at the Jimmy Fund Telethon in August of 2012. It's pretty incredible and worth watching.

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, highly compassionate cancer care, and Leah's Fund for Rare Pediatric Cancers.

Thank you so much for supporting me in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
