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

I’m walking in the Jimmy Fund walk for the second year, to honor my beloved husband, Edward, who died of anaplastic thyroid cancer on October 29, 2017.  He was the love of my life and my best friend and I miss him every single day. I’m walking in the Jimmy Fund walk to raise funds to support the continuing research of Dr. Jochen Lorch, Edward’s oncologist, who along with the amazing team at Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Womens hospital, became part of our family.  Edward’s original prognosis was 3-6 months, and Dr. Lorch and his team gave us almost 5 years.  I’m walking to somehow in my own small way contribute towards fighting the hideous beast that is cancer, so that fewer and fewer people have to endure the heartbreak that our family and friends have.

Edward was involved in several clinical trials and much of what was learned from his treatment and response has been applied to treatment of current thyroid patients.  Please support me in my walk as 100% of the funds raised by Team Thyroid will go directly to Dr. Lorch’s continuing research and to support his patients and their families.
