I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
In April of 2018, I was diagnosed with stage 3 triple negative (TN) inflammatory breast cancer (IBC). This is my first walk with Dana Farber and I am honored to walk with my oncologist and her team to fight this rare ( I like to call it unique! ) and aggressive form of breast cancer. Thanks to my medical team, I am getting more of me back, making my way, and fighting forward - for me and my IBC sisters and brothers. To learn more about IBC, visit https://www.dana-farber.org/health-library/videos/what-is-inflammatory-breast-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!
