I'm walking for the third time in memory of my mom, Gina Gatter, who passed almost three years ago from liver cancer.
It's surprising how much time has passed. As about this time three years ago was when my mom was diagnosed and we learned of her illness, my family and I are missing her very much lately.
The Walk itself is a nice way to celebrate her memory as it brings together the people who were closest to her. Of course, it also raises money for funding cancer research, which is anything but cheap by the way.
In order to walk, I need to meet the minimum fundraising amount of $325, so please if you have any money to spare consider donating to the cause! It doesn't have to be much at all, anything is appreciated.
I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
