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! In the past, I have participated in this event as a member of Team MIRO in memory of my father-in-law who lost his battle to prostate cancer in 2005. This year, the name has been tweaked a bit and is now called TEAM MIRO POWERED BY PETE'S POSSE. Our dear friends' 38 year old son, Pete, was diagnosed with a grade 4 brain tumor last month. After two surgeries, Pete is now undergoing rigorous treatments of chemo and radiation at Dana-Farber.
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!
