I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk in gratitude for the amazing care my family has received through Dana-Farber, Boston Children’s, and the Jimmy Fund.
My nephew Owen, at 2 years old, was diagnosed with Langerhans Cell Hystiocytosis. Their quick action, and amazing care made this difficult time less stressful. He just finished a year of chemo and his prognosis is the best we could ever hope for.
Owen especially enjoyed the arts and crafts in the Jimmy Fund waiting room on his chemo days.
We are so grateful to have such an amazing resource nearby, especially during this pandemic.
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.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk! 💪🏻💪🏻
