I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
This year, COVID-19 has severely impacted the everyday operations at Dana-Farber and they need funding more than ever. Every bit counts towards providing the resources necessary to keep cancer patients safe. Your donation will go towards providing protective equipment and procedures, preventing infection, offsetting the cost of implementing telemedicine technology that allows patients and their families to meet with their care team virtually, and to help relieve pressing financial strains felt by patients, their families, and caregivers.
As always I walk in memory and honor of my late boyfriend Nick Cecchi, who passed away in 2016 from Rhabdomyosarcoma. Cancer is scary enough and I sincerely cannot imagine how terrifying it would have been for him, myself, and his family to navigate COVID-19 on top of everything else.
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 and highly compassionate cancer care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
