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

A year ago, Carrie Dunsmore died of colon cancer at the age of 40.  Much too soon, she left behind a mountain of books (some even unread), countless friends, and a loving family.  Together, we are walking all 26.2 miles the Boston Marathon in her memory.  Our goal is the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!

When you make a gift to our walk, you’re directly supporting the doctors, nurses, and researchers who work everyday to provide the world's best cancer care to people like Carrie and countless others.  

Our team is raising money for Dana-Farber's Young-Onset Colorectal Cancer Center - one of the first programs of its kind anywhere.  In the last 20 years, the risk of a young adult developing colorectal cancer has increased by more than 50%.  This trend is accelerating, and no one knows why.  Dana-Farber is trying to find an answer, and your support will help.  

The Young-Onset Colorectal Cancer Center is bringing together scientists and researchers from different disciplines across the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center to understand the risk factors and biological mechanisms involved in young-onset colorectal cancer.  They are examining every angle: diet, lifestyle, the immune system, the microbiome, targeted signaling pathways, mutations, and gene expression patterns, to name a few.  

Thank you for supporting our team in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
