Almost ten years ago, I lost my friend, Maureen Bonin Bedard to cancer. She was a loving wife, mother, daughter and friend. At just 41 years old, she was taken from her family and friends from this horrible disease. She was beautiful, kind, and funny with a warm and infectious spirit. We miss her dearly. Ten years ago, our team, Maureen's Warriors for Life, was created in her honor and memory. This year, I not only walk in memory of Maureen, but in honor of my sweet mom, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer last October. I want to do my part to help Dana Farber raise money to find cures and treatments for all kinds of cancers. That is why 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’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!
