On April 25, 2018 I was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer during pregnancy. I gave birth to my son Emir that same day and quickly began treatment at Dana Farber Cancer Institute. IBC is a rare and aggressive cancer. Extensive research is very much needed and Emir and I are committed to working towards a cure.
Emir and I are participating in the 2019 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 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!
