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 the Young Adult Program (YAP) at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Young adults (aged 18-39) face a variety of challenges when diagnosed with cancer at such a young age. YAP aims to address issues related to changes in lifestyle, family life, development, school, and work through providing emotional support services, opportunities to meet other young adults receiving treatment, and educational programs aimed at enhancing knowledge and self-advocacy skills. Any contribution you make will directly go towards YAP programming and young adult specific resources.
I was diagnosed with a rare liposarcoma in the midst of the pandemic and completed my treatment at the end of August! I'm walking to help raise awareness and money for further research.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
