When I first participated in this walk it was in honor of my mother and her courageous battle against Stage 4 Breast Cancer. In the years since then I have gained many more inspirations that push me through the 26 Miles. I have sadly also added a few more reasons to walk in honor of loved ones that did not win their battle against cancer. It is because of this that 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!
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!
