I would like to start by taking the time to thank you for visiting my page. The Jimmy Fund Walk is something that means a lot to me so I appreciate you taking the time to be here. Now let me introduce myself. My name is Mitchel Eknaian, I'm 29 years old and i love spending time with my family and loved ones. Unfortunately the time i had to spend with my grandmother was cut short 6 years ago when she was taken from us. She truly was a remarkable woman. Having left this earth way to soon she was sure to leave behind beautiful memories and a family to be proud of.
Dana-Farber is a foundation that makes it possible for people like my grandmother to stand a fighting chance against such a cruel disease. She was only one of the millions of people who fight this disease daily. Contributing to this foundation in even the smallest of ways can make monumental changes in someone else's life.
Everyone of us has the power make a difference and to be apart of something bigger. I hope everyone who has taken the time to read this realizes how lucky we are to live our day to day lives. I hope you grow as an individual and become the best version of yourself. I also hope you realize the importanance of giveing back whenever you can, to whoever you can, in whatever way you can and making a difference in the lives of others.
All my love,
