Team B-RAF is at it again, galvanized by Newt, who lost his battle a week ago. The Jimmy Fund walk was Newt's "Christmas", his favorite event of the year. He looked forward to the Jimmy Fund Walk all year long, every year.
This year will be different without Newt walking physically with us, but we're sure to feel his presence as each of us steps closer to a cure.
Newt was a big supporter of the work Dana Farber does day in and day out for cancer patients. He was treated well by his doctors, nurses and technicians in each step of his journey.
On Sunday, we have an energetic group walking in honor and in memory of Newt: Liz, Sean, Nan, Suzanne, Kimara, Erik, Maggie & Kim.
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!
