I am excited to be participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way.
We have been walking with Jessica as part of Team Neuk the Leuk since her diagnosis in 2014. This year, our team walks for a young warrior named Gracie. She was also diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). But Gracie is only two years old - and her family got the news days before her birthday last Christmas. No child deserves this fate. Fortunately, Gracie, Jess and thousands of other Dana Farber patients receive compassionate, world-class care from some of the best clinicians in the world. That's why we walk!
Yes, 2020 has been a strange year - but cancer isn't taking a rest from the toll it takes - and neither can our commitment to help the children and families who need the kind of care provided by Dana Farber. We hope you'll help.
When you make a gift, 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. We know first-hand about the amazing care provided by Dana Farber and we're proud to be part of their "family."
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we will conquer cancer!
