I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
My son Max was first diagnosed with Leukemia in 2016, right before his 7th birthday. Unfortunately since his initial diagnosis, Max has relapsed 2 more times. With his most recent relapse, Max is eligible to receive a groundbreaking therapy in attempts to rid his body of cancer forever. This treatment is available ONLY because of research. Research made possible by the generosity of donors like you.
•Your donation matters.
•Your donation IS changing lives.
I’m incredibly thankful that Max’s cancer has been researched to the capacity it has, or we’d most definitely be in a very different place right now. But the reality is there are so many families who are not as lucky when they receive the devastating diagnosis that their child has 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.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
