WHY I'M FUNDRAISING

Cassie received her care at Dana-Farber, and it was crystal clear that her team was amazing.  As a physician, I felt so relieved to have her in good hands.  It was compassionate, hopeful, evidence-based, aggressive when she wanted that, and appropriate.  Always anticipating the next move.  And at the end, the coordination of resources shifted her smoothly into hospice.

She encouraged us all to support the institution at every turn.  Completely hilarious, Cassie said it best herself:  “Don’t worry, this one’s a WALK!”

Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk.
