Dear Friends and Family,
I’m reaching out to you today because I am planning on participating in the 30th Annual Jimmy Fund Walk that will be held in Boston on September 23, 2018. I’ve pledged to raise funds to be used to support critical cancer research that is vital for pediatric and adult patient care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Over the past years, many of us have known friends and family members who have faced the challenges presented by a diagnosis of cancer. Throughout their battles with this dreaded disease, Dana-Farber has provided a sanctuary for support, information and treatment. This year however, the fight against cancer has taken on a new personal meaning. My wonderful husband, Stuart was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in February. He has been fortunate in that his cancer was found extremely early and was able to be resected surgically. However he is still undergoing chemotherapy in the hope of preventing any chance of recurrence. Throughout his treatment, Dana-Farber has provided an extremely supportive and caring environment for our family.
Would you please join me in the fight against cancer by considering a contribution towards my fundraising efforts? I realize that we all have many financial commitments but the funding for cancer research can have a huge impact for all of us.
Cancer affects all of us. By doing my part to help conquer this disease with your support, we can all move closer to the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.
Thank you in advance for your generosity and time. I appreciate your help.
Yours in health,
