I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
Some people would say we've been unlucky, with Ben's leukemia diagnosis happening at all. While that may be true, I prefer to focus on how fortunate we have been - that we live in a place that has access to excellent medical care and Ben is able to be treated at Boston Children's and The Jimmy Fund. The doctors, nurses, and all the staff at The Jimmy Fund Clinic have become a second family to all of us - helping us make our way through the ups and downs of treatment and bringing smiles to our faces whenever we see them.
The Jimmy Fund Clinic continues to be an amazing place, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. They continue to treat Ben in person, make us feel safe, and are our partners (actually, guides) on this journey. It’s the one place we go outside our home. They’ve been adding in virtual check-ins and scheduling online social events for the teens to make up for some of what has been lost due to social distancing.
Please support my walk so The Jimmy Fund clinic can continue to provide excellent health care and support for the whole child, and family, while they fight this terrible disease.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
