I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, in memory of my dear friend Liz Acaba who passed away last October of NET cancer.
Our Team, the Zebra Divas was formed several years ago in her honor. Liz, was a friend, a sister, a wife, a mother, an aunt, and an all around beautiful soul. She fought long and hard and made the best of every moment.
Liz didn't just battle cancer she paved her own path through it living every day, every moment to the fullest and showing that no matter how hard things get love is the way. Her steadfast commitment to her family and friends through out her own difficulties makes showing up for her the only choice. The team she created to stand up to NET also ended up providing us all with such wonderful connections and support as we deal with the huge hole in our hearts. Liz is still taking care of us. We are all here to raise money. Our team wants to spread awareness of NET, get the word out. Liz prayed for a cure for this disease and we will help continue her work so that one day her prayer will be answered.
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.
