PLEASE SUPPORT MY BOSTON MARATHON WALK TO FIGHT CANCER WITH THE JIMMY FUND

On September 23, I participated in the 2018 Boston Marathon(R) Jimmy Fund Walk, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!

I walked in honor of all those who are fighting cancer today including my friends -- Debby Miran, who has battled leukemia since 2002; Lance Colie, who lost a leg to liposarcoma in 2007, but keeps on moving forward; my long-time friend, Clarie Krinsky, who has twice fought off breast cancer, and my mother, Judith Judson, a breast cancer survivor in 1980, who was just diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma.

I also walked in memory of all we have lost to cancer, but in particular my friends -- Randy Strause, Mary Ellen Leahy, Joel Falk, Gene Pfeifer, and David Weeda -- and my grandmother, Harriet Nenoff, all of whom were taken much too soon.

And more recently, our own Lady Di — Diana DiMare — who, after fighting off bouts of breast cancer since 2006, finally succumbed to the beast in early 2016, but whose smile still radiates among her friends to this day; Jay Leventhal, an inspiration to me 35 years before he had cancer, who also died in 2016; my former Duane Morris colleague, Jay Cohen, taken in July 2016, too early due to brain cancer; and most recently, Syd Hamet, former client, former colleague and friend, who, if he could have fought cancer with his endless supply of jokes, would still be with us today. All are dearly missed.

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!

All the best,

Michael Swit
