I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
As many of you know, my best friend and college roommate of 4 years, Kristen (yes, same name!), died at the age of 23 from leukemia. I decided to become an oncology nurse not long after that. I truly wish every day that she had the opportunity for the treatments that we are able to offer today.
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.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
