Declan is why I joined this team so many years ago. His mom and dad have been two of my favorite people on earth since I met them in high school. I remember the excitement when he was born, and the devastation when he started his battle with cancer not long after.
I started walking for Declan. I keep walking for him and for so many other friends, family, and loved ones who battle cancer. I train and I walk to honor our loved ones lost to cancer - especially my mother-in-law. This event is a time of reflection.
There are so many things I cannot do and cannot control when loved ones are facing this fight. This walk is something I can do and something that makes a difference as it helps to fund the amazing work done at Dana-Farber.
This year it is my goal to become a Pacesetter by raising $1,500. Please give as able and consider sending my link to others who may be able to provide support.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
