My name is Alexandra, I am 12 years old. I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk to raise money and awareness for cancer patients. I am walking in memory of my Papa (Bill Goode) and my Uncle (Greg Booker).
My Papa was an engineer who owned his own company. He used to grow flowers in his garden and let me pick them. Papa was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2013 and died 2 years later at the age of 69. My Uncle Greg was a professional baseball pitcher for the San Diego Padres. He was diagnosed with skin cancer which spread he died this year at 58.
Please support my fundraiser to raise money for other cancer patients and their families so they do not have to suffer. Thank you. -Alex
