I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
I continue to walk and run for Dana Farber & The Jimmy Fund in honor of my brother-in-law, Nick Cecchi, who passed away in 2016 after a battle with Rhabdomyosarcoma. He taught me so much...he was an unbelievable friend and brother to me....and this journey of using my healthy body to help raise money so others can return to health has taught me even more.
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.
This year, COVID-19 has severely impacted the everyday operations at Dana-Farber and they need funding more than ever. Every bit counts towards providing the resources necessary to keep cancer patients safe. Your donation will go towards providing protective equipment and procedures, preventing infection, offsetting the cost of implementing telemedicine technology that allows patients and their families to meet with their care team virtually, and to help relieve pressing financial strains felt by patients, their families, and caregivers.
No child, no family, should have to walk through a cancer journey. I keep walking and running in hopes that someday we'll see a world without cancer.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
