I am walking for my first time this year in honor of Riley Fessenden.
At the age of six, Riley Fessenden was diagnosed with a rare nasal cancer. Riley remained smiley, positive and full of hope during her treatment. Her spirit joined a community and inspired many. Riley passed away on July 20, 2016 at the age of nine.
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!
