On March 1, 2017 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Although it was a challenging journey, I am happy and healthy today. My team at Dana Farber was outstanding. In looking for a way to give back to the hospital and team that was so good to my family and I, I joined the Dana Farber Patient Family Advisor Council and walk in the Jimmy Fund walk annually. I hear from DFCI patients all the time that there is something special about the hospital and I agree. Please consider donating to this wonderful cause! Dana Farber is dedicated to patient care and research.
At Jounce we donate our Jimmy Fund money to patient and family services to help support patients during their treatment.
To do my part, I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk on September 22, 2019 , taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
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!
