I am excited this year to walk with Wendi's team (Weber's Wonders) as part of the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
I will never forget that day, just over two years ago, when Wendi told me she had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. I watched her fight through surgery, chemo, and all of the other ancillary health challenges that came with her diagnosis. She beat cancer, thanks in part to the great care she received at Dana-Farber. It's an honor this year to walk with her team and raise money that could help save lives.
As I walk, I will also be remembering my mother-in-law, Ellen Hastie, who lost her battle with cancer two year ago this month.
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!
