Please help me raise $$ to help conquer cancer!!!!!

20 years later and I am still walking to help find a cure!

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.  

I first started walking 20 years ago with my friend Molly who I am in this photo with .  I cannot believe 20 years ago I had only known one person with cancer and she was a little girl that I met at Camp Sunshine volunteering.  We walked because we knew we would be able to keep each other company for 26 miles and because we were passionate to help raise money to find a cure.

20 years later I continue to walk.  20 years later I wish I could still say I only knew one person.  20 years later I know so many effected .. too many who have lost their brave fight and  fortunately so many that have won their fight including Myself and Molly.   I will keep walking to help find a cure.  Please send me names and I will walk to honor them.  Thankyou ,

When you make a gift to my Walk, you’re directly supporting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge research and compassionate patient 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 Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can defy cancer!
