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

Hi Everyone,

Taking part in the event is such a humbling experience.

For me this is my 9th year walking.  When I did my first walk my reasons for doing so were simple.  I wanted to do something to help to find a cure for cancer.  At that point I had not been personally affected by the disease.  But as years passed things changed.  I  walked for friends and family that had been touched by this disease in one way or another.  And I will continue walk and show my support to them for as long as I am able to!

But this year my team walks in memory of my dad, Robert J. Fredette Sr.  In December of 2018 he was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer - Mesothelioma.  There are few words to describe how I felt when I heard this.  Sadly he lost his battle at the end of May, 2019.  He was 88 years old. My dad was such a wonderful man and he will be deeply missed.

If you are able to support my walk I am grateful!  If you are not that is okay too.  Just keep us in your thoughts on walk day. :)
