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!
My daughter Piersyn, age 7, was diagnosed with a pilocystic astrocytoma brain tumor this past July. She had surgery to remove the tumor. Thankfully the surgery was a complete success and we were able to begin her road to recovery. Although her tumor was benign, Dana Farber Cancer Institute will be seeing her as a patient and will follow her very closely. She will have MRI scans every 3 months for several years. Our hope is that the tumor does not grow back, but if by chance it does I know that Dana Farber Cancer Institute is the exact place she needs to be and they will take excellent care of her.
I am participating in the Jimmy Fund walk as this amazing Institute has the best of the best and will continue to be the best as all the money goes towards research for a cure to cancer.
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.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
