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

This year our walk will be a virtual walk.  My team and I will walk in and around Milford with my house being the start/finish.  We are still determined to walk because all money raised goes towards research at Dana Farber.  I have had a very rough year (not counting the pandemic, murder hornets and riots).  In November I had to have another nephrostomy tube placed in my left kidney, so now I have a bag in each kidney and my ileostomy bag, not really easy to shower or get dressed…

In February we were on our last standard drug used to treat my cancer and it stopped working.  My doctor gave me six months.  We could still try repeating some drugs that we have already tried, and maybe buy me another 4-6 months.  We went home and spent the next few weeks getting my affairs in order.  At the end of February the research nurse called and said I qualified for a clinical trial, I jumped at the chance.  It meant spending the first month on the trial in the hospital during the week and then weekly visits for infusion at the clinic.  I had an unbelievable response to the treatment, my disease was decreased by 42% and it bought me some additional time.  We don’t know how much time this will give me but we are hoping at least a year or so.  Dana does amazing work and new research trials come out every day.  I am happy to be a part of these trials, even if they don’t help me they could help someone else down the road.

Please consider a donation to my walk, for everyone who is fighting this terrible battle.  I appreciate your support!!
