Conquer Cancer with Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund!

Please help us fight childhood cancer!

It is that time of year again where Halle and I will be doing our annual walk/bar crawl with the Silver Strong team for the Jimmy Fund.  It was one of Jake's last wishes that we continue doing the Jimmy fund walk with our team to raise money for childhood cancer research.  

We caught Jake's cancer early and in the end, it didn't matter. The same methods were used that were used with his uncle who died from the same disease in the '70s.  There have been no new breakthroughs or treatments for Osteosarcoma in 40 years because there isn't a lot of funding that goes into childhood cancer research.   "Childhood cancer research receives less than 4% of the annual budget from the national cancer institute," even though "childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 19 in the US." - National Pediatric Cancer Foundation. 

So we walk and we raise funds to find new treatments so other kids won't have to go through what Jake went through.  I thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can conquer cancer!
