I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer! I'm participating to do my part. So many loved ones have been lost to cancer and walking the Boston Marathon makes me feel less helpless.
We should all try to live every day as if it were our last. Enjoy the little things, - the things that we all take for granted. A smile, a hug, even an, "I love you!' Lots of cancer victims aren't able to take those little things for granted any more. Cancer is a brutally aggressive disease and needs to be conquered.
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. I’m walking in memory of the many family members I’ve lost due to cancer as well as for all of the family and friends who are battling cancer each day. I walk for my aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. I walk for those who are no longer able to walk themselves. I want to do what I can to help. I want to walk with the thousands of participants who spread the kindness, love, hope, and support to those who need it most.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer! Your donation is appreciated more than you'll ever know. Please help pay it forward to show that together we can all make a difference. Thank you!
