WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO DEFY CANCER

On October 2nd, I will walk 26.2 miles in The Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk for the 11th time. 

I’m walking in special memory of my dad (Walter Kaminski), my brother Steve Kaminski, my mother-in-law (Jean Day), and my sister-in-law (Karen Day), as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends who have all lost their battles with cancer.

After my brother died of an unknown cancer in 2008, I vowed to do what I could to raise awareness and funds for cancer research.  My amazing sister-in-law, Karen, died unexpectedly from complications of liver cancer in 2013.  My mother-in-law succumbed to lung cancer in 2016. My dad’s lung cancer diagnosis in 2017 was a complete shock. A non-smoker, the diagnosis seemed out of the blue.  He was gone in just 9 days! 

All of us have been touched by cancer in some way. A loved one, a roommate, a colleague, a neighbor, or even a child of a dear friend.  Some have fought bravely, and many are still fighting for their hope for a cure.

When you make a gift to my Walk, you’re directly supporting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge research and compassionate patient care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.

Won't you please consider supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts? Together, we can defy cancer!

Thank you!
