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

Hi! This is my 6th year fundraising for the Jimmy Fund and my 5th Jimmy Fund Walk as part of Team ED. I walked for the first time back in 2017 after my husband Ed's diagnosis of multiple myeloma earlier that year. After watching the bravery with which he faced his diagnosis and treatment, which included spinal surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, extensive physical therapy and rehab, and a stem cell transplant, I knew I had to do my part and channeled my feelings of fear and helplessness into action. The treatment advancements made possible by the research done at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute have given quality of life to patients like Ed and hope to families like mine, but to date there is no cure for multiple myeloma. 

Fundraisers such as this one ensure that the Jimmy Fund and DFCI have the necessary financial means to provide vital support to families like mine. I cannot put into words the gratitude I have for all of those who worked so hard and continue to work hard to provide the care Ed needs. I made a promise that I would not stop supporting the Jimmy Fund until there was a cure. Please help me reach my goal and achieve my dream!


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.

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!
