I am participating in the 2018 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
My reasons for walking are too many to list! I am walking in memory of Mom who we lost in 1983 to breast cancer and to honor so many friends and family members who have been impacted by cancer. I walk to thank my Dana Farber dream team who has been an amazing source of support and inspiration to me for the past 3 years. I also will be walking in thanks to my cherished tribe who has been with me every step of the way, providing me with financial and moral support with my own journey with cancer. The cherry? Walking the marathon route which my Dad ran in 1982 and my brother Chris will run in 2019!
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! If anyone wants to get outside for some great exercise to support a terrific cause, please join me!
