I am participating in the Jimmy Fund walk for the fifth year. Four years ago, life was forever changed when my wonderful husband John was diagnosed with NET cancer. He was treated at Dana Farber Cancer Institute by Dr. Jennifer Chan and her team. From our first meeting we knew we were in the right place. He received the highest quality of care, and was treated with kindness and compassion. DFCI is also known for its ground breaking research. They are certainly working very hard trying to eradicate this disease.
Sadly, NET cancer took John away from us in December of last year. I lost my best friend and soulmate, my kids lost their dad and our granddaughter little Madi had barely gotten a chance to know her Papa. He meant so much to so many people, and touched more lives than even I knew. The world is a sadder place without him in it.
While I wish John had gotten more time I believe that he lived as long as he did because of the care he received from Dr. Chan and the other wonderful people that we encountered at Dana Farber.
