As you know, six years ago I lost my sister-in-law and close friend, Dina. Dina battled cancer as a child and was successfully treated at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Tragically, she had numerous medical complications related to this and in April of 2013 she passed away.
On September 22nd I will join Dina's husband, their 9 year old daughter and many other family members on a team honoring her in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. The funds raised through the Walk enable leaders at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to apply monies rapidly when promising new research opportunities arise. Your gift enhances the programs and initiatives that serve patients and their families who come to Dana-Farber for its signature "total patient care philosophy."
I know that many of you have contributed to our fundraising efforts in the past very generously. I want to thank you, in advance, for considering another donation and for anything at all that you can give.
