On Sunday, September 22nd, I will be participating in my 17th Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk, taking those all important steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
Every year since 2003, I have hit the Boston Marathon route, walking in honor of my nephew, Nicholas, a two-time cancer survivor, and in memory of my mother, Nancy, and her battle with leukemia. Having seen firsthand the impact that cancer has on families, I have made it a mission to help in any way possible to make this dreadful disease a memory. I believe that with your support, we can make that happen. 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. It truly is a difference maker. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families, improving treatment and care for everyone.
Thank you again for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can someday make cancer a word we use in the past tense! Let's do it!
