I am fundraising with the Jimmy Fund Walk to fight cancer for Michael. My son, Michael, was diagnosed with Leukemia in November of 2018. Over the last year, we have spent so many days at the Jimmy Fund. The Jimmy Fund isn't just a place where Michael gets his treatment. It is a place where he can play, it is a place where he can see his friends (that include many nurses, doctors and child life specialists), and it is a place that has supported my family over one of the hardest years of our lives.
Michael is now in 1st grade. He is a very active 6 year old. He played soccer this fall and played tee ball this summer. I owe this "normal" to the Jimmy Fund, their life saving treatments, have allowed Michael to be a kid. Michael still has a long way to go with his treatment, but I am thankful we are in good hands at the Jimmy Fund.
I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
