Thanks for visiting my page, keep reading if you'd like to know more about why I fundraise for this fantastic philanthropic organization!
My late Nana was, and still is, my hero. She was the kindest soul with an endearing spirit. Her initial prognosis after she was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer was that she had a mere two months to live. She lived for two years beyond that prognosis. My family, our friends, and I had much more time than we thought we would have had with her. I believe that the innovative research and focus on patient care at Dana Farber Cancer Institute is what allowed my Nana to make so many more memories in that time frame, as well as her determined spirit to beat the illness. I fundraise with so many others for the Jimmy Fund because I want people to have the same opportunity I did to have more time with their loved ones and people they care about. Please consider donating to an unbelievably worthy cause that has such an outstanding reputation and history behind it. My team and I appreciate any contributions you can make, or even a message of support for the day that we walk on Sunday, October 4th, 2020.
When you make a gift to my walk, you’re directly supporting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge science and highly compassionate cancer care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.
