I am participating with Sienna and Alexa in memory of their dad, Darrell Azure, who sadly lost his battle to glioblastoma brain cancer in February. He was so proud to participate in the Jimmy Fund walk last year and it was a big accomplishment. He had just been released from the hospital the day before. He was weak after learning that his tumor had returned for the third time. He had been so strong through two brain surgeries in the 12-months since being diagnosed and was determined to complete the walk. He crossed the finish line that day and continued to have hope for a cure, if not for him, but for others in the future.
When you make a gift to my walk, you’re directly supporting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge science and highly compassionate cancer 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 participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
