I started fundraising for Dana-Farber in 2014 when my mom, Jeanne Burchard, was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. She continued to live life to the fullest for the next 6 years not only because of the cutting-edge medical care she received but also due to the loving, respectful and personal interactions that she received from the doctors, nurses and all that she encountered at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. I will forever be thankful and indebted to them for those extra years with my mom.
Since that time, myself, other family members and friends have been effected by cancer.
I'm reaching out again to ask for your help as I am participating in the 2023 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.
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.
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can defy cancer!
