As I am sitting here now, registering for this years walk, two very good friends of mine are battling this disease with everything they’ve got. Daily, they are fighting for their life. The doctors haven’t given either of them very much time which completely devastated me. My heart is heavy, but, my determination to do all I can to kick cancer's ass is strong. No one should have to suffer the way they are now suffering and have been for some time now.
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!
