WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO DEFY CANCER

In April of 2016 I was diagnosed with Stage 2B Triple Negative Breast Cancer. After encouragement of a dear friend, I sought out a second opinion at Dana Farber and began 9 months of treatment. 


This will be the 6th year that my family and friends will walk. It’s a cause near and dear to our hearts. If not for the comprehensive, compassionate, and cutting edge treatment I would not be here today. As a patient, I endured 22 rounds of chemotherapy, 6 weeks of daily radiation, 5 surgical procedures which included a double mastectomy and removal of ovaries and Fallopian tubes. 6.5 years later I can say I’m living my best life.

This walk has become even more important to my family. My amazing mother in May of 2021 lost her life to Pancreatic Cancer and this has solidified my commitment to helping to fundraise and help Dana Farber do the great things it does. Through their continued research, I pray for a world with no cancer or at the very least a world where cancer treatment is less invasive and more tolerable to patients. I honor her and memory by continuing to raise awareness and much needed funding. The Jimmy Fund helps these efforts. It allows doctors and scientist continue to work round the clock researching and finding the best treatment options.


Please consider a small donation to a very worthy cause. I can’t think of a family that hasn’t in someway been touched by this terrible disease. We feel fortunate to live close to this wonderful institution, but the work that they do is far reaching. People from around the country and world access care here. The research and developments make a difference.

After a two year hiatus from the fanfare of walk day due to COVID, my team is so excited to be back in Boston. If you can’t join our team and walk with us, please consider a small donation. 

When you make a gift to my Walk, you’re directly supporting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge research and compassionate patient 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 Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can defy cancer!
