I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
As some of you know, I walk on Team Lynch Syndrome, formerly Team Sandi. My cousin Sharon started this team in 2013 to raise awareness and funds for Lynch Syndrome research; Lynch runs in our family and we discovered this when my Aunt Sandi was diagnosed with colon cancer. Up until this year, we thought that Lynch was a genetic predisposition primarily to colon and pancreatic cancers. In February, we learned glioblastoma is also on that list.
This year I'm walking not only in the memory of my Aunt but for my cousin Jessica, because she will beat this and we will find a cure.
