My nephew, Grady, was diagnosed with Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) last August. In order to halt the disease, he had to undergo a bone-marrow transplant at Boston Children's Hospital with the help of the Jimmy Fund Clinic at Dana-Farber.
He has defied so many odds, and is powering through this devastating diagnosis.
Grady is the strongest, kindest, most amazing 8 year old I know! We can’t wait to walk and support him.
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!
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.
