WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

I will be walking in my 5th Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer! During my first walk my then 7 year old nephew Connor was recovering from bilateral kidney surgery that removed tumors from both of his kidneys. He had already undergone chemo to shrink the tumors before surgery and still had a long road ahead. Upon his diagnoses, I vowed to fundraise and walk every year for this life-saving cause. Happy to say that Con is 11 years old and thriving. He continues to visit the Jimmy Fund for tests and check-ups but he's doing great!

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!
