A DIFFERENT TYPE OF BATTLE FOR ETHAN - PLEASE CONSIDER SUPPORTING MY FUNDRAISING EFFORTS WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

It was early in the morning this past May when I received a call from my brother saying Ethan had been admitted to the hospital. Ethan’s prior two weeks had been accompanied by shortness of breath, ear aches and a general lack of energy.


Ethan is my 20 year old nephew who is currently a sophomore at Santa Clara University. He was having the time of his life. The symptoms turned out to be a function of something more serious, and that was a diagnosis of both lymphoma and leukemia. He is now in a Dana-Farber aggressive two-year treatment program that includes radiation therapy, intravenous chemotherapy, and chemotherapy directly into his spinal column.


This disease is vicious and has affected all of us in some capacity. Ethan has been incredibly courageous in his early days of fighting his cancer, and we are confident he will return to good health once the amazing medical staff at Dana-Farber help him through his treatment. Ethan has become my inspiration to walk with family and friends in an effort to fight alongside him. When you make a gift to my walk, you’re directly supporting Ethan’s caregivers, as well as the scientists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. They are literally Ethan’s lifeline.


Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. We can, and will conquer cancer.
