I am participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.
I am walking for my mom.
She was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma which is a rare form of blood cancer. This type of cancer weakens not only her bones but also causes tumors in her bones that are inoperable. This past year she made trips into Dana-Farber on a weekly basis to undergo chemotherapy, multiple bone biopsies, a stem cell collection and much more. She has been so incredibly strong and an inspiration to us all. We are so grateful for her amazing team at Dana-Farber, who have given her nothing but outstanding care and support throughout this journey. If you know my mom, you know how selfless, kind, and loving she is. My dream for her is to live a life where she doesn’t need to be burdened by this terrible disease.
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.
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can defy cancer!
