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!
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.
I am planning on running a virtual half marathon on October 4, 2020, to raise money for pediatric cancer. I am doing this run because after donating to Emery's Memory Foundation in August, I keep getting Facebook alerts of children who have earned their angel wings or still fighting for their lives. When I read their stories all these thoughts go through my mind "how awful, how unfair, why does a child need go through this?, what if it were one of my children?" to name a few. Pediatric cancer is something that no child or family should have to endure. An amazing family in our hometown is going through this awful, unfair fight for their daughter, so I am running for her and all other children that need our support to continue cancer research and compassionate care these kids and families need. I am also running for the strong health care providers who are able to provide the amazing, unique care this patient population requires. Please consider donating, any amount counts! Love you all!
