Walking the walk along with Grace and fighting for a cure

I am walking in my first Jimmy Fund walk as a 20 year cancer survivor and in honor of the beautiful Grace. I was diagnosed at age 13 with Stage 4B Hodgkin's disease and went through many rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. I want to give hope and strength to the ones standing beside me and walking (whether its a sick child or family that's witnessing this awful disease). Being a stage 4 cancer survivor is something I never thought I would be able to say, however, I fought each and everyday alongside my mom, dad, brothers, family and friends to get where I am today. I give many thanks to the Jimmy Fund and all the amazing people who I miss and won't ever forget. Robin, Eorna, Tricia and Lisa - You all have impacted, inspired and touched my family and I and we are forever grateful to you ladies. This is a small way I can give back and spread hope and I am grateful to be able to be here to do that.

My co-inspiration to walk this year is for someone very special. Katie is a dear friend who I met through my previous job but she stood out. We clicked, we bonded and she is one of the most amazing and genuine people I have ever been blessed with in my life. Her daughter, Grace, was diagnosed with ALL and at such a young age it makes it so much more difficult. Grace is absolutely precious and can light up a room with her smile. Spending a few hours with her and seeing her little personality and love she has makes this year so much more important. She is an absolute trooper and has not had an easy road but still she remains strong! I am proud to walk with Amazing Grace this year and I am even more proud to be close to this amazing and loving family. Grace, you are an inspiration to me with how well you are doing. You've been so strong through everything and I am so grateful to know you and your mom and family. Keep Smiling. Keep fighting.
