WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

I am participating in the 2021 Jimmy Fund Walk taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!

In late April 2021, I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Since May, I have traveled to Dana Farber to see the doctors who determined my treatment plan, Dr Matulonis (Oncologist) and Dr Worley (Surgeon). In addition to seeing these brilliant and compassionate doctors, I also have testing and chemotherapy treatments at Dana Farber. 

In July, I underwent surgery to remove all cancer that could be found in my abdomen. By October 3rd, when I participate in the Jimmy Fund walk, I will have completed my surgery, all 6 of the planned chemotherapy treatments, and be ready to move on to whatever is deemed best to keep my cancer from coming back. I am so grateful for Dana Farber and all of the dedicated doctors, nurses, researchers, and staff who are helping to eliminate 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 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. Together, we can conquer cancer!
