I am participating in the 2022 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 research and compassionate patient care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.
I continue to walk each year to honor the strength and hope with which my sister lived through her Ovarian Cancer treatments at Dana Farber. I walk to ensure that her memory continues to propel me and others forward toward our goals and toward a cure for Ovarian Cancer.
Dana Farber not only works on cutting edge science to develop better, more targeted, and more effective treatments for cancers but provides resources and services to care for the patients and their families as people. This wrap-around care is what has sustained my family and so many others as they are touched by cancer.
My goal is that my children and their loved ones will know cancer as a manageable chronic disease rather than a fatal one.
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can defy cancer!
