Michael, our 5 year old son, was diagnosed with Leukemia in November 2018 and is being treated at the Jimmy Fund.
We have met so many incredible people at the Jimmy Fund. From the people at the front desk to the doctors, everyone is so kind and so caring. There is always someone there to talk to, answer questions, play games, or even get a massage during treatment (Michael's favorite). The Jimmy Fund staff make patients' and families' time there as fun as possible, there are always new activities, theme days or special visitors.
Michael and our family are able to keep a positive mindset during treatment days, because going there feels like a home away from home.
The Jimmy Fund has been nothing short of amazing.
This walk is our family's way to give back to such an important organization in our lives.
