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

I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk in support of those that inspire me on a daily basis.  I am a Radiation Therapist and I get to know patients throughout their course of Radiation Therapy, a type of cancer treatment that many undergo.  More often than not, patients are under treatment for several weeks and the bond I form with them is the most rewarding part of my job.  

Being someone they can talk to, a friendly face, or a shoulder to cry on is what makes my job so meaningful.  Throughout my time as a Radiation Therapist, I have seen and gotten to know a wide variety of patients.  I would be lying if I said my job wasn’t challenging at times.  Seeing a child who should be running around outside but is instead receiving 6 weeks of radiation, or realizing a patient is the same age as your mother or father are all harsh realities that put life into perspective.  

The strength of my patients is unparalleled, and while I have been touched by many, I am not sure I could ever be as inspired as I was by Janelle Tobin.  Janelle was a friend and my high school team mate and in September of 2018 she also became my patient.  Janelle maintained such a positive attitude as she made her way through treatment, always coming in with a smile on her face.  She was a ray of sunshine and taught me so much about life in the short time she was treated in Radiation Oncology.  Her grace and strength made such a profound impact on me and I will be walking these 26.2 miles in her honor.
