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

Eight years ago, I was in the last year of college when I received the frightening news that my mom was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. I will never forget hearing my dad on the other end of the phone explaining to me a disease that I could not even comprehend, until he explicitly, and very hesitantly, told me it was a form of blood cancer.

My mom would go on to receive intensive regimens of chemotherapy and eventually a stem cell transplant that would require her to stay inpatient for over a month. 

I have vivid memories of walking through the halls of Dana-Farber, scared, confused, and angry – but feeling comforted by the warm, pleasant, and welcoming environment and the competent and caring staff who were there every step of the way.

Even in my young and inexperienced years, I knew Dana-Faber was special and every detail was crafted with patients and their family members, like me, in mind. Little did I know, only a few short years, later I would be working with the most incredible people and supporting the mission of Dana-Farber as an employee. 

Every single day I feel grateful for the impact Dana-Farber has made, and continues to make, on my life - and most importantly, I feel grateful that my mom is surviving her cancer almost a decade later. 

To ensure that Dana-Farber will continue to be successful in treating pediatric and adult patients with cancer and their families (like my own family) I am participating in the Jimmy Fund Walk this year to raise funds for lifesaving research initiatives and programs that treat the "whole" patient and their family.

As one of my family members or friends, I would like to ask you to consider making a gift, of any size, to support this incredible place. I very much appreciate your consideration and support! Thank you for all.
