I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, 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.
Our story...my husband, Joe, was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer in April 2018. Sadly Joe passed away in November 2019, leaving behind me and our four children. Joe was treated at Dana-Farber in Milford, MA. Everyone who worked there greeted us with a smile EVERY time we walked through the door. Joe's team at Dana-Farber not only treated him with their cutting edge knowledge and expertise, but also with the utmost compassion and kindness. We both considered each person on the team to be a hero and an angel! Our family received so much support through various programs at Dana-Farber. We are grateful recipients of the generous donations from people like you. This year, my team, Sullivan StrongER, is has designated Colon Cancer to be the recipient of funds from our fundraising at the Jimmy Fund Walk. We will walk and do all that we possibly can to further research and provide funds for patient care at Dana-Farber.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
