On September 30, 2021, I got a terrifying phone call -- my dad was in the hospital after having a seizure at work. At first the prognosis was not great - they found two tumors in his brain. After two surgeries, we learned these tumors were stage 4 melanoma. Thanks to the incredible care and treatment opportunities at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, less than 1 year later, he is cancer free and cleared to return to normal activities. I'm walking to support Dana Farber's ongoing patient centered care and cutting edge research to ensure more families have the outcome we did.
I am participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.
