On Sunday, September 22, I will be participating in my fifth Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk in support of my niece Lillian Becker! Once again, this year, Lillian will be walking 3.1 miles with me. I am walking because I want to help my 12 year old niece, Lillian, and other sick children like her in their fight against cancer. Lillian was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) on December 24th, 2009 just two months after she turned 3 years old. She went through two long years of chemotherapy which included 2 weeks of radiation. She has had many battles and even though she beat cancer she still does fight against the side effects it left her with.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
