I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
My father fought long and hard against prostate cancer but ultimately lost his battle last December. Over the 10+ years of his fight he had his femur replaced with a metal rod, suffered through hundreds of kidney stones, had a metal rod placed In his back, tried every trial offered to him with enthusiasm and dealt with all of the side effects of the many drugs he used to fight this horrible disease. Due to my father's unique fight, his cells were donated to Dana Farber and as they will multiply can forever be used by Dana Farber for research. He cared so deeply for his doctor and his doctor cared so deeply for him. He is missed every day by his family.
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. Together, we can conquer cancer!
