This will be the seventh year for me and for our team, Heels for Harlow. This means it has been 7 years since I lost one of my best friends, Carolyn Harlow, to cancer. Though Carolyn's life was cut short, the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute extended her life and improved the quality of her life for many years after her diagnosis. This year I am walking for Carolyn but also for anyone and everyone whose life has been touched by cancer. Right now that feels like everyone.
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!
