A big thank you to all who have given your support to my cause!! We have reached our original goal of $10K!! I have increased it slightly to keep the momentum going as every donation is so valuable and meaningful.
Here’s my story:
I’m a 44yr old Mom of two wonderful young kids, aged 7 and 10. A Cancer diagnosis transformed my life this year. It’s hard to describe the feelings that fill my heart on a daily basis since then. I quit my full time job to focus on my health and the kiddos. Thank God I am able to do that, as many other patients don’t have that option.
On October 04 I will be walking 10K in support of Jimmy Fund! Do you want to join me? I have created the “Smiling warrior” team (as my beloved sister Amelia calls me!) and you can join my team and walk 10k in your own neighborhood!
You can also support this initiative by making a donation and spreading the word. My dear hubbie Jose Vicente and I have created the “Lucia Brower foundation for Gastric Cancer Research” and will channel all donations to my Jimmy Fund walk through this fund. Gastric Cancer is one of the most aggressive and least funded types of cancers, which motivated us to create this fund as every donation is particularly of high impact.
Also, 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 in the Gastric Cancer field to enhance programs and initiatives that serve patients and their families.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
