I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
I wanted to wait until Covid 19 ended but that isn’t happening anytime soon.
Many of you know I lost my wife Bette to Brain Cancer 12 years ago. Last year my 18 year old niece Corinne, passed away after battling Rhabdomyosarcoma cancer for 4 years. My sister in law, Michelle Diamond, also passed away last year from cancer. Then suddenly in June my brother Matt passed away from Brain Cancer. I have also lost several Cousins, Uncles, Aunts some of their children and many friends to cancer. I have a large extended family ( 8 brothers and sisters, which is a blessing, but also a curse, as Cancer seems to be in our DNA.
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!
