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!
Like so many, I have known too many people who have had their lives impacted by cancer. I began participating in the Jimmy Fund Walk in 1997 in honor of my friend Jonathan, who lost his battle to Neuroblastoma at the end of that year.
This year, I will be walking as part of the Kessler's Crew/PACT team to support the Palliative Care program at Boston Children's Hospital. We have all faced unprecedented challenges this year, and this is especially true to the families served through the Pediatric Advanced Care Team at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children’s Hospital. They are experiencing undue financial hardship, isolation and exhaustion as they seek to care for their children. Please consider supporting our extraordinary needs fund which helps to ease this burden. At the same time, funds are used to bring little acts of joy to the children we serve and to support innovative ways to provide care.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
