It's hard to believe it's been 5 years since we lost our dear friend, Darby, to this terrible disease. I am reminded of her smile, her courage, her generosity, and her amazing spirit regularly, but especially this time of year. Part of her great legacy was forming Team Darby as part of the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk, as a way to move us closer to a world without cancer.
This year, the Jimmy Fund Walk will be held on September 22nd. I have been a proud member of Team Darby since the beginning, and once again will be raising money that will be dedicated 100% to the research team led by Darby's doctor, Eric Weiner, in their quest to find successful treatments for metastatic breast cancer. Darby had every confidence in Dr. Weiner's ability to ensure that other women wouldn't face the same fate as her, and Team Darby continues to support his efforts to further her dream of a cure. To date, we have raised more than $800,000, and are hoping to push that total past the $1 million mark, which would be an amazing accomplishment to link to Darby's name.
Please consider making a contribution to Team Darby or, better yet, joining the team yourself. Thank you for supporting our efforts and, most of all, Darby's dream!
