My dad and me at the Jimmy Fund Walk finish line in 2010

Lucky Number 13

This October, I will participate for a 13th year in the Jimmy Fund Walk to benefit the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.  I continue to walk each year in loving memory of my dad, Larry Alexander, who received extensive treatment from Dana-Farber for a rare blood disorder until his death in November 2012.

While the Walk is returning to the Boston Marathon route in person this year, I have a conflict – this year’s Walk Day is also my first wedding anniversary!  Sam and I will be celebrating our anniversary in Maine this weekend, but the Walk is too meaningful for me to miss it entirely.  I am still committing to walking 26.2 miles, as I do every year, on a different day – October 15.  I will be creating my own route again this year, with mapped out bathroom and food stops along the way.

As the 10th anniversary of my dad’s death approaches this November, I am even more aware of the incredible care he received at Dana-Farber.  Research on his condition and the treatments that he received has already advanced significantly since his death, and yet there is still so much more work to be done.  In the last year alone, three of my family members and friends were diagnosed with different cancers.  Fortunately they all have completed treatment and their prognoses are good, but it has highlighted for me again how important this cause continues to be.

I hope you will join me in making a gift to this phenomenal institution in memory of my dad, and in honor of others affected by cancer.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and support.  It means so much to me and my family.
