Walking For All Of Us

In August of 2020, life as I knew it changed forever as I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. During the days and weeks that passed, I along with my family feared for the worst. Beyond the physical pain, this was by far the most overwhelming emotional experience I had ever endured.

I spent five weeks between the hospital and rehab before I could return home to continue with physical and occupational therapy and learn to find a new normal in my daily life. It has been a long two years, but I am happy to say that I am back chasing my granddaughters and granddogs, going to the gym, and taking long walks with my loving husband.

For so many years, Lee biked the PMC, raising money for The Jimmy Fund, a charity most in the Boston area know of. I had always heard that the care at Dana-Farber was top notch, but it wasn’t until I first stepped foot in the building as a patient that I could fully comprehend how impactful the entire team’s care actually is. From the caring valet who parks my car, to the kind technicians who draw my blood, to my compassionate oncology team, every single individual that represents Dana-Farber goes the extra mile to make each visit that much less stressful.

I feel so grateful to be able to have this level of care and the support system that comes with it. The unfortunate reality is that I am not alone in this fight. So this year, I am not only walking for myself, but also I am walking for so many women out there who need access to the same level of care that I have been so fortunate to receive.

By donating to my Walk, you’re directly supporting Dana-Farber’s compassionate patient care and cutting-edge research. Thank you for supporting me in my efforts to support the place that supports me most.
