DONATE AND FIGHT TO END CANCER WITH TEAM THYROID

Many of you know our story: On October 29, 2017 after a quietly hard fought 5 year battle my papa died from complications from Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer. Before cancer took over our life, and even when it did, Edward Baker was a quiet and wise man, he loved being a father and a "Pop Pop", he worked on the house he designed and built for his family and planted his garden year after year. He was a sailor, a dancer, a Friend, a historian and our world became a dimmer place without him in it.

On September 22, I am walking along side my mother, my sister, our friends and loved ones and my papa's oncologist, Dr. Lorch. We'll be marching, laughing, crying and remembering our way through 13.1 miles to raise money for my father's care team to further their research. Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer is very rare, it metastasizes and spreads quickly and it's one of the most aggressive types of cancer in humans. When given this diagnosis, my father's prognosis was 3-6 months... Dr. Lorch's team gave my family 5 years. 

Due to the nature of his cancer, my papa was involved in several clinical trials, funded partially by donations just like this! Much of what was learned from his treatment and response has been applied to treatment of current thyroid patients. When you donate, 100% of it will go directly to Dr. Lorch to be used to further that research. 

Last year I raised $3,500 so I've upped the anti and with your help, I hope to raise $4,000! Thank you for supporting my family and I in our journey to remember, honor and walk in the 2019 Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk!
