DIANE - MY JIMMY FUND 2022 HERO

I have participated in the Jimmy Fund walk for several years and have always dedicated my 26.2 mile walk to several individuals who are currently going through treatment and those that I keep close to my heart for fighting the tough battle  This year I would like to single out one individual who has been such an inspirational person to me in so many ways: 

"DIANE"

DIANE was one of the first volunteers I met when I started at Dana Farber.  She has a magnetic personality when dealing with patients and their families, always leaving them with a smile  Patients always made a connection with her and would love to see her behind the desk when they went in for their appointments.

As Diane and my friendship grew, I found out about her several ongoing cancer bouts and medical issues.  Her attitude in life astonishes me.  Diane has always battled her diagnosis with a positive disposition and outlook.  

Her daughter and family would describe her best – “she is as tough as nails and she is a real fighter”. Diane is a true DFCI hero – not only does she fend off her ailments, but she has also given back to DFCI for all they have given her with their top-notch medical facility and treatment. She not only volunteers at Dana Farber but she gives 2 days a week at the HOPE House in Easton or otherwise known as Yawkey House of Possibilities.

Diane has once again found herself back on the cancer battle field. Diane embodies the reason why I walk 26.2 miles. I feel helpless watching her fight again to overcome her cancer, but if I can somehow raise money for DFCI to continue to find ways to wipe out cancer so that individuals do not have to encounter this horrific disease, it will be my small contribution.  I am sure everyone who is reading this knows someone whom has gone through cancer at some point and have felt helpless like myself, but if you can make a contribution to the Jimmy Fund so that they can find new ways and trials to wipe out cancer then hopefully we can accomplish that. 

      Thank you and feel free to share.
