I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
When you make a gift to my walk, you are directly supporting the efforts of the Pediatric Advanced Care Team (PACT), the pediatric palliative care team at Boston Children's Hospital and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and our Quality of Life Fund for children and families facing serious, life-threatening illness. Through this fund, we help support patients and families going through some of the most difficult times in their lives by providing quality of life items (toys, extra bed rolls, a cup of coffee for a worried parent), integrative therapy supplies (mindfulness tools, coping kits, fans for nausea and difficulty breathing), meaningful experiences (aquarium trips, movie nights, expenses for traveling families), therapeutic resources (books for sibling coping, anticipatory grief books and resources), concrete resources, and more. In contributing to this fund, you directly assist in PACT's mission of providing an extra layer of support — healing, comfort and quality of life — to the care of children with serious illness and their families.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk!
