WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

In January of 2018, my husband, Keith Longbottom, was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma Multiform brain tumor. Though he pursued the most aggressive treatment he could, sometimes at great expense to his quality of life, there is no cure for GBM. The average lifespan of someone diagnosed with GBM is 12-15 months. Keith outlived the average by 2 months, giving us 17 months to say a long painful goodbye to him. He left behind two sons and many people who love him.
Through this journey, I met a woman named Julie Wilson who also lost her husband, Travis Sauerwald, to GBM. Julie and Travis were so successful raising money when participating in previous Jimmy fund walks that Dana Farber promised to earmark all money raised by Team Wolverine to go directly towards brain tumor research.
Participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund walk is one small way we can try to make a positive change towards finding a cure for brain tumors.

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.

Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
