I'm Walking to Secure a Future Without Cancer

In 2011, my mother, Betty Weisend, died from complications of lung cancer. In 2019, I began a great journey as a Director at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. During my last 20 months at Dana-Farber, I've learned so much about the daily miracles that happen there. And I've heard the dedicated and amazing doctors and researchers, clinicians and support staff, discuss how much more can be done to conquer cancer. 

On October 4, I will be walking from my home in the South End to Harvard Square, about a 7.5-mile trek. I am hoping to raise a minimum of $810.29, a very specific figure, I know. August 10, 1929 was my mother's birthday. To honor her, and everyone who did not survive cancer, I'll put one foot in front of the other. If you are so inclined, please agree to support my steps. When the thousands of people who are participating in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way all take steps, we move a little closer to the goal of a world without cancer. Thank You!
