On Sunday, Sept. 22, my family and I are participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
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.
It also means a lot to us personally. My brother Anthony was treated at Dana-Farber, and although he lost his battle in 1995, the innovative and compassionate treatment he received there helped him fight to the end. My mother Helen became a tireless and passionate supporter of Dana-Farber in the hopes that no parent would have to go through what she did. She lost her own battle with cancer in 2010, and now we walk in her memory, too.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
