20 YEARS OF FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO DEFY CANCER

I am participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.

20 YEARS!!

This number is simply unreal to me! Julia was only 8 years old when she was diagnosed with HIGH RISK ALL(ACUTE LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA). It was a time in our lives that none of use will ever forget. 2 years of grueling treatment including Chemotherapy, surgery, lumbar punctures, inpatient stays, weekly and then later every three weeks visits to the Jimmy Fund Clinic, more transfusions than we can count, Low immune system, pain, headaches, loosing too much weight, and then gaining weight as a side effect of the medication, mood swings, insurance changes in the middle of treatment causing concern for coverage, financial changes due to only one of us being able to work during this two year period, emotional toll of everyone of us living through it, and long term side effects. 

However, we are the lucky ones! We had the expertise and compassion of every single person we came across at BCH and Dana Farber to help us along the way.  

Julia is a thriving 28yo woman, working as a school adjustment counselor as an LCSW. She is in her element working to help improve the lives of so many children. We owe her life to everyone at this fine institution and the amazing work they do to advance the treatment of all kinds of cancer. 

This year feels like a milestone worth celebrating with all of our efforts! We are hoping to rejuvenate our team this year to help increase the funds to enable continued cutting edge research and compassionate patient care. Our goal is to increase our team to greater than 50 members to flood the streets of the Boston Marathon Route with TEAM LEVINE walkers with a team fundraising goal of $20,000. 

Anyone who would like to join us, please join our team. There are multiple route options this year back on the course in Boston as well as "Your Way" virtual options. 

If you are unable to join us, and would like to donate, please know that 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 Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can defy cancer!
