Conquer Cancer with Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund!

Never Forgotten

On Sunday, October 2, 2022, I will once again be participating in the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.



I continue to do this to honor my son Steve. But this is also for my many friends who have fought cancer, and my courageous breast cancer patients at the Winchester Hospital Breast Care Center.

Thank you for all your support in the past. This is my 19th year, and I am asking once again for your generosity. Last year I raised over $3,000; this year I hope to match or beat that amount. Bob and I have been giving our time as volunteer parent advisers to the Pediatric Advanced Care Team (PACT), a joint effort between Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Children’s Hospital Boston. These medical professionals are dedicated to providing palliative care to children who are in advanced stages of disease, and helping their families. Any funds I raise will be specifically earmarked for PACT.

It's easy to have an impact on this important and universal cause. You can:

Make a gift online: Give directly through this personal fundraising page.

Send in a check: Write a check payable to "Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk" with my name and participant ID 1005514 in the memo line and send it directly to the Jimmy Fund Walk at:

Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk
P.O. Box 3595 
Boston, MA 02241-3595

If you choose to sponsor me, don’t forget to request matching funds from your employer.

Thank you in advance for your generosity. I appreciate your support.

Best regards,
