I am participating in the 2021 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
My family has been directly affected by cancer this year when my wife Cathy was diagnosed with advanced stage ovarian cancer in April. We joined forces with the Dana-Farber team of doctors and nurses to get top-quality medical care.
The reality of this disease is that there is no reliable screening test for the early detection of ovarian cancer. The majority of cases are not diagnosed until the disease is already advanced, which can seriously compromise a woman's survival rate.
I walk to help bring awareness to this terrible disease, and I walk to support an organization that conducts important research, resulting in possible new avenues of life-saving treatment for Cathy.
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 compassionate patient care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.
Cat and I sincerely thank you for supporting our Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can conquer cancer!
