I am participating in my 6th Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.
On June 1, 2022 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. WOW! I really never thought I would say those words. It was detected early on my annual mammogram so the tumor was small. I had a lumpectomy on June 16th and will start radiation at the end of July/first part of August. I received a second opinion from an amazing surgeon at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and was very impressed with the care everyone provides to the patients, like me. Luckily, my breast cancer is what they call 'run of the mill' so I was able to have my surgery at my local hospital, Emerson Hospital in Concord, MA. But I believe because of the research that is happening at Dana-Farber Cancer Research Hospital, my breast cancer was easily treated and I have an overall positive prognosis!
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can kick cancer!
