I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
In January of this year, after celebrating our son's 4th birthday, Jim was diagnosed with Lymphoma. Our world had been turned upside down. We are fortunate to live in the best city for cancer treatment and Dana-Farber is not far from our house.
After 3 rounds of Chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant on August 6th, Jim is in remission, and is doing remarkably well. Jim's positive attitude and fighting spirit carried him through. The staff at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is another big part of Jim's recovery. The care and support they have shown us has been remarkable.
We've seen so much cancer in our lives, Jim, his mom, aunts, uncles and cousins, as well as my mother, great aunt, cousins, Adam, and a lot of our friends. We want to give back to Dana-Farber where so many of our family has been treated, or continue to be treated.
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.
