Once again, 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!
As you all know, Joe was diagnosed with Stage 4 Renal Cancer in 2014. There is no cure for Joe at this time and by supporting the Walk, you support Dana-Farber’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge science and highly compassionate cancer care. Our care team at GU oncology has helped us through the toughest times dealing with side effects and illness while on treatment. They are like family to us.
We are also blessed with a committed Walk Team, ( thank you ) and good friends who are always there to pitch in when needed and who lend moral support when the going gets tough.
Joe continues to be strong and fight to spend as much time as possible with his sons and grandchildren. He remains positive and looks to the day when there is a cure for cancer. We are getting closer, but critical research needs funding and that is where we all become part of a bigger picture. All of the funds we raise go to support Kidney Cancer Research at Dana Faber and vital clinical trials.
Thank you for supporting me.
