I am participating in this year's Jimmy Fund walk in memory of my mother who passed away this year from her battle with cancer. I am also walking in celebration and support of the work Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund have done to ensure that I can walk along side my sister Colleen, diagnosed more than 25 years ago with a brain tumor. I very literally have them to thank for or family being as full as it is today. It has been a supremely rough year for so many people and I hope you will consider donating to these organizations to help them hold more families together and help prevent more people from having to take this journey in the future. Thank you!
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.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
