WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!

I walk for my mom, Michele. In December of 2015, my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer. Since there is no screening for this type of cancer and symptoms are often slow to arise, it went undetected until the cancer had already progressed to an advanced stage. My mom had no family history of the disease and lives a healthy and active lifestyle, causing the diagnosis to come as a complete shock to all of us. 

Thankfully, after several months of treatments and surgeries, my mom has now been cancer-free for over two years. My family and I are so grateful for everything that her team at Dana-Farber has done to help her get to where she is today. My team, Michele's Ovary Achievers, and I are walking this year to raise money and awareness for ovarian cancer research. Together, we can fight for earlier detection and more advanced treatments for this disease.

Thank you for supporting Michele's Ovary Achievers! We would love for you to join our team by clicking "join my team" above.
