I am walking this year to celebrate my son Michael, who COMPLETED treatment for Leukemia B-ALL on December 30, 2020! It was the longest 2 years, 1 month and 8 days of our lives, but because of the Jimmy Fund, it was better than I ever imagined it could have been.
The Jimmy Fund made treatment days fun. Michael always loves going there. The nurses and childcare specialist always made each visit special. There is always a new craft to do and a new day to celebrate. Even with the pandemic this last past year, they were able to think outside the box and go above and beyond to make sure the kids could still have fun.
The care Michael received from his team over the last 2 years has been nothing short of amazing. All our questions were always answered, and every concern discussed.
Michael is thriving. He is a very active 7 year old. He loves legos, transformers, minecraft and bot bots. He is in 2nd grade, loves going to school to go to recess. and is playing soccer this fall ....and I owe all of this to the Jimmy Fund.
I am participating in the 2021 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
