I am participating in the 2021 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
This is my mom and I at my high school graduation. She's was the same age in this picture as I am now. It's been almost 10 years since cancer took her from us. I have been doing the Jimmy Fund Walk since then and hope she's as proud of me now as she was then.
I proudly walk as part of Team Todd. Janet Schwartz became my son's kindergarten teacher less than a year after I lost my mom. After Janet lost her son Todd to cancer she started Team Todd, which has been on of the most successful fundraising groups in the history of the Jimmy Fund. Janet's relationship with her son reminds me in so many ways of the relationship with my mom. Being part of Team Todd helps bring all of this full circle.
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can conquer cancer!
