Jimmy Fund 2018 Walk -- me with Buz Aaron

PLEASE HELP ME FIGHT CANCER -- GIVE TO THE JIMMY FUND!

Friends, Family, and Colleagues:

On September 22, I participated in the 2019 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 and family: Debby Miran, who has battled leukemia since 2002; Lance Colie, who lost a leg to liposarcoma in 2007, but keeps on moving forward; Cooper Atkinson, the ultimate endurance athlete I know, who has fought off colon cancer three times since 2000; my long-time friend, Clarie Bland Krinsky, who has twice fought off breast cancer, Sara Caccioppoli, the grandmother of my sons, who also has twice fought breast cancer, and, most close to me, my mother, Judith Judson, who survived a 1980 bout with breast cancer and who was just diagnosed last year with invasive ductal carcinoma.

I also walked in memory of all who we have lost to cancer, but in particular my friends, Avis Fram, Randy Strause, Mary Ellen Leahey, Joel Falk, David Weeda, Eric Leventhal, and my grandmother, Harriet Nenoff, all of whom were taken much too soon.

And more recently, Lady Di, Diana Di Mare, who, after fighting off bouts of breast cancer since 2006, finally succumbed to the beast in 2016, but whose smile still radiates among her friends to this day; Jay Leventhal, Eric Leventhal's older brother, 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 Syd Hamet, former client, former colleague (at Par), 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.

To make a gift, hit the red GIVE button on the upper right of this page.

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

p.s. Why do a walk in Boston? Besides the fact that the Jimmy Fund and Dana Farber is a great cause? My best friend, who lives right outside Boston, was doing the walk on the day before his birthday, 9/23, to honor his mother's memory and I want to join him in this effort for the 2nd year in a row.
