I am participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.
Many of you know that I was diagnosed with uterine cancer in 2018 and learned that I possess a genetic mutation (known as Lynch Syndrome). This mutation is hereditary and makes me more susceptible to certain types of cancer - most importantly colon cancer. Since then, I have actively researched Lynch Syndrome and made it my goal to learn as much as I can and be as proactive as I can to prevent future cancers. The Lynch Syndrome Center at DFCI has been invaluable to me. They present an annual conference, which they offer free of charge, where I learn about the latest research and screening recommendations. Funds raised during this walk go directly towards supporting that annual conference.
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can defy cancer!
