Jimmy Fund Walk 2022

It is hard to believe that it has been almost 5 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 my fifth 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 be held in person in Boston for the first time in 3 years, on Sunday, October 2 and I've joined Team Head and Neck, captained by Jason Glass, Edwards’s Nurse Practitioner extraordinaire.  All monies raised will go directly to support research at the Head and Neck Center.  Please support me as generously as you feel led.
