I’m Kendra, and raising awareness for cancer has become a huge part of my life. While in college I participated in Relay for Life events and held leadership roles when it came to planning the event. I got involved with our campuses Love Your Melon group and was named Captain my senior year. Finally, last year I became a volunteer at Camp Sunshine over the summer!
Raising awareness for cancer is so important to me for so many reasons. My uncle was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and battled it for six months before passing. A family friend battled Leukemia a handful of times and eventually lost against it. Also, through Love Your Melon and Camp Sunshine, I have met the most amazing group of superhero’s and their families!
I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
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!
