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!
Many of you already know about my journey with breast cancer. I cannot fully put in to words how it feels to hear the words “you have cancer”. What I can tell you is that when you see the commercials for Dana Farber that say “you have cancer, but what your cancer doesn’t know is you have us” they mean every word. It is a daily mission of every employee to let you know you are not alone in the fight to beat cancer. They work tirelessly to find answers, target therapies and treatments specifically to each patient, find ways to make treatments have less side effects, and help as many patients as possible to become “Living Proof”. I will proudly wear my “Living Proof” pin because I am proof that research saves lives! We are so incredibly fortunate to have Dana Farber right here in our community.
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 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 conquer cancer!
