Hello AGAIN dear Friends and Family,
Many of you have already contributed to my walk this fall but I wanted to add some names to send out and also give a gentle reminder to those who do plan to donate but have just gotten around to actually being able to do it.
Not being very good at working this site I do not know how to remove the names of those who have already donated. Please be patient and consider this another way of thanking you for your generous support!
This has been a year that has been way to busy with introducing cancer to friends and family. Since I wrote you earlier in 2019 three friends have died and several have received a new diagnosis of cancer. This makes the walk and resulting new research funds even more urgent in my mind.
Thank you so very much if you have already answered this note . Please consider a donation to the Jimmy Fund walk if you have not.
Many of you have been gerously supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk for several years, some might be new this year. To each of you I am so grateful and, once again or for the first time I ask that you consider donating to the Jimmy Fund Walk NOW so that many more people, especially children will be able to live long and healthy lives. There are new treatments and understanding of just how cancer works thanks to the hard work being done by researchers funded by the Jimmy Fund Walk.
This past year I have had several friends participating in clinical trials and they are doing well. It is amazing that diseases that just a few years ago were considered to be deadly are now considered curable or to be chronic and manageable.This is great progress!
Sadly though there is still so much work to be done. My dear friends, Judy, Mary, Vicky and Judith were not so fortunate. This year I will walk in their memory but also in honor of so many more brave people who's names will be on the ribbons on my walk day shirt as they continue to fight the cancer that has come into their lives.
I hope you will join me in celebrating their lives by donating now.
with much love and gratitude,
PS if you do not want to do an online donation I would be happy to receive a check from you and process it without your address. Simply send it to
