I have worked at DFCI for 20 years and I have participated in the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk for at least 15 of those years. I have walked to support the mission of DFCI. I have walked to support the patients cared for by the palliative care team. While I still walk for these important goals, I also walk to honor Brendan.
Today, I launch my fundraising efforts for the 2021 Jimmy Fund Walk. Today, Brendan should be celebrating his 43rd birthday. On October 3rd, I will add some KMFDM and Rick Astley to my walk day play list and I will walk 'my way' to honor Brendan's memory and to support the DFCI Palliators.
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 compassionate patient 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 Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can conquer cancer!
