I was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma on January 19, 2018. The disease was a very aggressive form but also fairly localized with only invasion into the renal vein and nearby tissue, all of which was removed from my body a week after diagnosis. While I am so thankful that the disease had not already spread to distant organs before it was caught, one doctor indicates that in my case there is a greater than 50% chance that the cancer will eventually come back in some way, and it could happen at any time.
That's why I am participating in the 2018 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
When you make a gift to my walk, you’re directly supporting my treatment team's research efforts at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Your support will allow Dr. Choueiri and his incredible team to take us closer to a cure for all patients.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
