I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, in memory of my husband Bob who fought valiantly against Pancreatic Cancer (PC) for 15 months! Through the many rounds of Chemotherapy, Radiation and the failed attempt at Whipple surgery Bob fought for as long as he could. He would always say that he wanted "another 10 years" to have fun with his family and friends and watch his great-grand children grow!
Knowing first hand what a nasty disease Pancreatic Cancer is and that there are currently only two treatment protocols a patient can do, we need to raise awareness and support cancer research in hopes of finding better treatment options and ultimately a cure!
This is what Dana-Farber does every day by taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
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.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
