I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer! I am walking for my friend Tita and in memory for my friend, Laura Hanson. Both are/were amazing women and true warriors! Tita is a badass woman and is currently battling breast cancer while taking care of her son. Tita has a great and supportive family that is there for her every step of the way. I will always remember Laura as a spitfire and funny woman. She had beat Bob (her name for her ovarian cancer tumor) twice, but unfortunately he came back and we lost her in April of this year. I will be walking with Tita and her team even though we will not be doing it Boston this year due to COVID-19.
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!
