I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
I walk in memory of so many people I love who have died of cancer. My walk began 26 years ago while spending days at the Jimmy Fund with Chris Sullivan, a 10 year old who unfortunately died of cancer. Each day I was with Chris at the Jimmy Fund I experienced the love, care, and support that not only the patient received but family and friends as well. The Jimmy Fund is an amazing place and my walk began that year. This year will be my 25th year walking and I will keep walking until I no longer am able.
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!
