SOMETHING WE CAN DO TO FIGHT CANCER

Four years ago, a routine annual physical turned into a dire diagnosis -- a lump in my neck was determined to be a type of thyroid cancer, with only a 5 - 10% survival rate. The cutting-edge care I received at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is why I'm alive today. 

Fast forward to 9 months ago, and a small remnant of my thyroid cancer showed up in my right lung -- once again, the team at Dana-Farber detected it early and arranged for the best surgical team to remove the growth. Today, I'm cancer free. 

I'm grateful, at a profound level, for which any words would be inadequate. So, as an expression of thanks to Dana-Farber, I'm participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk -- being held virtually this year -- to raise funds to fight cancer. 

My distance for this year's walk is 13.1 miles. I chose this length because it's the distance from my house to Fidelity and the offices at 900 Salem Street in Smithfield, RI. My "work family" of colleagues at Fidelity are the unrivaled best, and have supported me every step of the way, from my initial cancer diagnosis to today. 

If you want to do something to help fight cancer, or if you too are grateful for a cancer survivor in your life, I invite you to make a gift to the Jimmy Fund Walk this year -- any amount is genuinely appreciated. Just click the "GIVE" button at the top of this page.

Thank you!!
