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

Last year I walked in my husband’s honor.  This year I walk in David’s beautiful memory.  He passed away from brain cancer just like John McCain, Beau Biden, and Ted Kennedy among so many others.  He had just ONE  headache and our lives were forever changed.  Yes, David became “that guy”.  I made him a solemn promise that I would continue to fight to help others who suffer from this evil disease.  Every little bit counts and more importantly, it lets every warrior  know that we are in this together!

David was treated by Dr. David Reardon, his brilliant nurse, Jennifer Stefanik and their incredibly dedicated and selfless Neuro-Oncology team.  Dr. Reardon leads Dana Farber’s Neuro Clinical Research Department.  He and his group work tirelessly to develop new clinical trials to prolong the lives of brain cancer patients.  They fought like heck to keep David alive.  For that, my kids and I will forever be grateful.  Not once did David ever say, “Why me?”  In fact, he would say, “If it wasn’t me, it would be someone else and I would never wish this upon anyone.”  As many of you know, the funds allocated by the government towards cancer research have been cut drastically.  As such, fundraising is all the more important.  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.  We all have relatives, friends, and/or colleagues battling some type of cancer.  I know I do.  This is why I am walking.  I walk for David, and I walk for each and every one of my dear friends and relatives who have battled or who are battling right now.  TOGETHER WE WILL FIND A CURE!

Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk.  I know I am not alone in praying everyday for a world without cancer.  Xo
