Conquer Cancer with Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund!

You are making moonshot ideas possible

Hello Friends,

First of all, we hope you are healthy and doing well. It feels like we are starting to see a bit of normalcy (knock wood), including having the Jimmy Fund Walk back on the actual Boston Marathon course – vs. 106 laps at the Medfield Track!

This is year 28 for The A-Team that we started in memory of our young, 13-year-old friend Anthony. With your support, our team has raised over $750,000! We were inspired to learn of the new research into CAR T-cell therapy in Acute Myeloid Leukemia, which is the type of cancer Anthony had. This therapy is something we’ve seen a lot of in recent years. It can identify and target only cancerous cells and not harm healthy cells. Pretty exciting stuff!

We still have a way to go.  And so, for Anthony and all the others whose names have graced our shirts over the years, we continue to walk. This year the Jimmy Fund Walk is Oct 2nd and we need your support.

One thing about the money raised from the Walk is that it provides UNRESTRICTED research funds that allow scientists and doctors to do the work they couldn’t do otherwise.

Typically, you have to prove your idea works before they fund it. But how do you prove it without being able to do research? Your donation makes moonshot ideas possible – and leads to amazing breakthroughs. One step at a time.

Our fundraising goal is a hundred gifts of $150 – but any amount is fantastic. If not, that’s ok too. There’s “No Guilt” here. We do ask that you say a prayer for all those for whom we are walking.

We would love to have you there with us in our hearts and on our shirts. Please tell us if there is someone you’d like us to add to our shirts and we’ll “do a mile” for them as a remembrance for those who are missed and inspiration from those who have survived.

The advancements with targeted therapies are really promising, but there is so much more that needs to be done. We like to think of every dollar from our team giving patients a little more comfort during their battle, a little more hope for a cure, and hopefully a lot more time with the people they love. 

Love,Erin, Matt, Jack & Lily
