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!
As many of you know, my mom, Cindy, was in the wonderful care of Dana Farber for over a year to help treat Myelodysplastic syndrome. She was able to receive cutting edge treatment, and even a stem-cell transplant.
With the help of the treatment recieved at Dana Farber, my mom was able to see me graduate high school, help move me into college, and ultimately had more time with our family than expected.
I lost her on September 25, 2018. Race day, September 22, 2019, I am walking in her honor and to remember her lovely presence a year after her death.
My mom was a wonderful woman, and I hope to be just as great of a mom as she was to me. I miss her everyday! Walking in her memory, as well as donations in her memory, they one day; can help someone else's mom.
Please remember and consider the kind actions my mom took everyday, for anyone.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
