I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk to help support my middle school friend, Liz, who is battling cancer. She moved to Groton several years ago and it has been wonderful reconnecting. She was a great friend to me when I was battling cancer and would cheer me up with little presents, meditation tapes, candles, walks, and a blanket blessed by our priest along with printed prayers for spiritual inspiration. She also enrolled me in a 12 week YMCA gym program to help me regain my strength and stamina after I completed my chemotherapy. It is now my turn to reciprocate the care and love she gave me!
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!
