On January 23rd, my cousin Courtney found a lump on her daughter Chloe’s hip. The lump was soon diagnosed as rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of pediatric cancer that originates in the muscles. Chloe is and always has been the most spirited and sprite-like little girl. I am participating in the 2021 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai as a part of Chloe’s Sunshine Squad, in support of Chloe and the whole Marzilli family.
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.
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Helping Chloe keep her high spirits and beat rhabdomyosarcoma will also support the Jimmy Fund’s mission to fight cancer!
