On October 4th, the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way, will be held with thousands of fundraisers around the world walking to benefit The Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
My family and I have registered to walk together and to support this world class institute in memory of my mom who passed away on October 27, 2019. My mom was a patient receiving continuous treatment and care at Dana Farber from the time she was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in January 2005 until her passing.
The doctors, nurses and support staff that we encountered at Dana Farber over her almost 15 years of treatment were outstanding. We were truly blessed to be dealing with this terrible disease in a world class setting with a professional, caring and compassionate medical team at our side.
On October 4th , I will be walking with my husband, my daughters, my dad, my brother, my sister-in-law and my nieces in support of the Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way campaign . My son will be will be joining the team virtually from college and will be walking in Burlington, Vermont.
In closing, I would like to express my thanks for your friendship and support over the past year. Losing my mom has been extremely difficult but I know that her energy and spirit remain in our hearts, thoughts and memories and will be with us always.
Thanks so much,
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.
