WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

How do you measure a life?   

We all come into this world intending to have a fulfilling life but most of us lose our way trying.  We say, “I’ll be happy when…..”  That’s the problem …….  Most of us wind up chasing what we think will make us happy – wealth, power, things.  What mom knew, and demonstrated through the way she lived her life, is the simple fact that the single most important factor in being fulfilled is the relationships we have.  Mom’s life proved that nothing compares to the precious time you spend with the people you love, building lifelong relationships with family and friends, enjoying the fruits of those relationships,  staying in touch, lending a helping hand, and opening yourself to others.

What mom taught me by her actions is that a life is measured by the legacy left behind – the lessons taught, the wisdom carried forward.  With that, we will walk for mom this October.  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 will leave a legacy for mom and do our best to conquer cancer!  Go Team Joan!
