We are walking for the 6th year to celebrate and honor the life of Kathy Nash, who succumbed to her 4-year battle with Lung Cancer on June 9th 2017. Kathy lived life to the fullest and cultivated extraordinary personal relationships with all of her family and friends. She approached her life with cancer with incredible strength, grace and positivity, and we are grateful for the world-class compassionate holistic care she received from Dana Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI).
We walk to celebrate and honor my brother Pat's wife Amy, who also passed away from Lung Cancer. We walk to support Pat, his kids, and the way too many other family and friends in our lives that have been affected by cancer. We love you and miss you Amy, and know that you will be with us on this walk!
And We walk to raise much needed funds to support DFCI's mission to provide expert, compassionate care to their cancer patients while advancing the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, cure, and prevention of cancer and related diseases. More progress has been made in the past 4 years in cancer treatment than in the prior 40 years combined, and now more than ever, every dollar raised has an incredible and real impact on those currently fighting the fight.
Please consider joining Team Kathy's Krew, and/or donating to our fund raising efforts. As a Team Member, you will have the opportunity to do you own fund raising and team member recruiting. And while team members do not need to walk, we welcome and encourage all team members to join us in the actual walk on Sept. 23rd, 2018, which has been an emotional, but inspirational and uplifting day for our family for the past 5 years.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your love and support.
Bill, Connor and Owen
