Decades ago, I was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
In November 2017, my then 5yr old *now 7yr old, youngest grandson Nixon was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
#teamNixon was established in 2018 to fund research into Pediatric Cancer. I have seen first hand the trauma and unfairness that a cancer diagnosis has on a young family and would do anything to give my grandson the best chance at life.
Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives in particular, clinical trial 16-001 being led by one of the best pediatric oncologists on the planet Dr Lewis Silverman, considered the global expert in Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer and help my grandson Nixon and other Nixon's out there - they all deserve to be children!
