Conquer Cancer with Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund!

Why I am walking for the Jimmy Fund and the Perini Clinic...

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.

In September 1989 I was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer, osteosarcoma, and was successfully treated with chemo and limb salvage surgery at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in NYC. I now do my follow-ups at the Perini Clinic, and I am so fortunate and grateful to have their support and resources as a survivor 32(!) years later.

I walk in memory of my mom, my cousins Sherry and Dave, and in honor of my cousins Arlene and Sharon, and everyone in our lives affected by cancer. I am truly grateful for your support.

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.

The David B. Perini Jr. Quality of Life Clinic provides care and advocacy for survivors of childhood cancer, conducting research on the long-term effects of cancer treatments, and offering education and support for survivors of cancer.

The clinic gives survivors of childhood and adolescent cancers access to the expertise, education, and support needed to manage key issues related to survivorship, including the long-term effects of treatment, the risk of second cancers, and certain social and psychological concerns.
