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

September 2022

Dear Friends and Family,

Twenty one years ago I participated in my first Jimmy Fund Walk just a few weeks after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The country was in mourning and I had no idea if I would reach my fund raising goal. Through the generosity of friends and family I did. I have continued to walk yearly to raise funds for Dana Farber Cancer Institute. This year I plan to walk a half marathon on the nature trails and beaches of Cape Cod.

The money raised fund the researchers at Dana Farber who have discovered, tested, and implemented new chemotherapy, gene therapy, and immunotherapy modalities to treat numerous cancers improving the odds of patients fighting cancer. Unfortunately some cancers are more difficult to treat than others. Over the years I have celebrated with friends or relatives whose treatments were successful and mourned with family members of ones who were not so fortunate. Hopefully with more funding and research more lives will be saved.

Every year I walk for someone I know diagnosed with cancer. I do not have to throw a wide net. Somehow there is always a person close to my heart. This year I walk to honor a friend who is being treated for a blood cancer. She is an artist, advocate for cancer patients, fundraiser, gourmet cook as well as a friend, mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend. . I admire her compassion, positivity, and resilience. Along my walk I am guided by my shining light and inspiration, my niece, Jackie, who succumbed to sarcoma in 2019.

All of the funds raised through the walk enable the leaders at Dana Farber Cancer Institute to apply monies rapidly when promising new research opportunities arise. Your gift also enhances the programs and initiatives that serve patients and their families who look to Dana Farber for its signature “total patient care philosophy.”

Please donate what you can or just send words of encouragement. Daily adults and children receive new cancer diagnoses and are undergoing treatments.

All the best,
