WHY WE'RE FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER
This is why I am walking:
Below is the story of my camp friend, Alicia Fine, who is fighting this horrible battle. Here is her story and why I walk:
Not going down without a fight.
Join my team in raising funds to help fight cancer. I am alive today because of an amazing team at DFCI, but also because of the research and wisdom of countless scientists working tirelessly to find a cure. A Fine team is walking to raise funds and awareness for stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. Stage 4 needs more.
In 2018 I stepped through the doors at DFCI and was instantly enveloped in a world of care. Every step of my cancer journey, my care team has been indefatigable in their efforts to find a cure, and are the most caring and compassionate caregivers one could imagine. In January of
2020, less than six months after my last infusion, I learned my cancer had metastasized in my liver and lungs, and my care team came together stronger and more determined to help me fight. Since then, the disease has progressed, but I've been fortunate to have access to the newest treatments.
Funds raised by those before me help me with vital programs that gave me hope and the strength to fight Some of these programs are: Soulmates, Embracing Young and
Strong, The Zakim Center, and Friend's Place that outfit patients with wigs and many products to combat the side effects of chemo. Most importantly, funds raised have helped develop new technologies and treatments so my team can continue to help me fight with a myriad of options.
We are hopeful that raising funds to find a cure will give everyone a fighting chance - and one day, we may have a world without cancer.
