I WALK TO FUNDRAISE FOR THE JIMMY FUND IN MEMORY OF MY HUSBAND JIM

Hello Family and Friends.


I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!


Like many other things in 2020 this important event has transitioned to a virtual one due to the ever-present threat of COVID-19. We will still be walking. We will still be fundraising to eradicate cancer. We will still be getting the word out there that this fight is far from over.


It is my honor to once again be walking as a member of Team Tara, a team whose overall fundraising efforts will directly benefit Dr. Kimmie Ng and her extremely important work with metastatic colon cancer and the Young-Onset Colorectal Cancer Center that she has created at Dana-Farber. Though Dr. Ng was not Jim's doctor her research is crucial to help those like him who develop this aggressive disease at a very early age. The number of cases of this terrible disease has risen sharply in recent years and Dr. Ng and her research are hoping to work quickly and aggressively to identify root causes and hopefully make great strides in eliminating this disease in the future.


I am proud to be able to fundraise for this crucial cause so that future patients and their families can hopefully avoid everything that we went through during Jim's 15 month battle, and beyond.


I walk this year, and every year, in honor of Jim.


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.


I fully appreciate how difficult 2020 has been for everyone and understand monetary donations might not be feasible. Every $ raised helps fund Dr. Ng's research and helps colorectal patients like Jim get the amazing care and treatment that they so deserve. Please consider a donation to Dana-Farber and all of their life-saving work.


Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer! Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay positive that this terrible disease will be eradicated in our lifetimes.


Sending Love and Gratitude.


Jen
