I am fundraising for the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk as part of the team #shadesonstaystrong founded by my amazing friend, Cassie Firenze. Since her diagnosis in December 2017, she and her family have dedicated themselves to raising money for cancer research and Dana Farber. I'm sorry to report that the team is walking in her honor - she passed away on August 28 at the age of 45.
Cancer is a formidable opponent - but Dana Farber is putting up a great fight. 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. Cassie called it the “Neiman Marcus” treatment.
In honor of Cassie and my aunt Claire Carlson, in support of my friend Ellen Setzer, and all of those whose lives have been impacted by cancer -- please donate if you can.
