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. I am walking for The Heme Team, which means your donations directly support patient care and research for our lymphoma and leukemia programs, so that other patients can receive the incredible & thoughtful care I received from Dr. LaCasce, nurse Hannah Freedman, and the whole Yawkey 8 team after I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma two years ago.
For every dollar you donate here, I will donate the same amount to Physicians for Human Rights Israel, which works to promote a just society where the right to health is granted equally to all people under Israel’s responsibility. Through the organization's open and mobile clinics, volunteer medical professionals provide services free of charge to people with limited or no access to health care–primarily migrants, refugees, and Palestinian residents of the West Bank and Gaza. I will also match every dollar you donate here with an equal contribution to the Black Women's Health Imperative, which stands for health equality for Black women and girls.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
