It is hard to believe that it has been almost 4 years since my beloved Edward passed away from anaplastic thyroid cancer; 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 this year, my fourth year, to honor him and to raise funds to support the research of the Thyroid Center and the entire team at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute Head and Neck Center. Edward’s original prognosis was 3-6 months, and this amazing 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.
This year the walk will again be held virtually on Sunday October 3, that is instead of thousands of us walking the Boston Marathon course, we will each be walking locally, following our own path. Friends and family will be joining me as we walk the local roads and woodland trails near our home that our family have enjoyed for many years. Please support me as generously as you feel led.
