WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER



Many of you know, last week I was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia.  Its a form of blood cancer, and unfortunately just randomly comes on out of nowhere.  Fortunately it seems like it was caught early, and even more fortunately is very treatable.  With any luck, I'll take a pill for the rest of what will hopefully be a very long life.

The scary part is that 20 years ago, the prognosis for this had a 3-7 year life expectancy.  Super scary thing, but ridiculous that in such a short time they have made unbelievable progress in treating it.  Obviously, all of that has to do with the amount of Cancer research, based on the millions and millions of dollars raised.

Coincidentally, just a couple of days ago I received a flyer in the mail for the Jimmy Fund Walk.  Most of you are probably familiar with the Jimmy Fund, and they raise a ton of money for Cancer research, as well as do all sorts of other great work.  I've decided that this year I'll start a team to raise some money, and hopefully do my part to help maybe cure myself, or maybe cure someone else 20 years from now.

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!
