Conquer Cancer with Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund!

WHY I AM PARTICIPATING IN THE JIMMY FUND WALK

I've pledged to raise funds that will support critical cancer research specifically designated to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, an area of Dana-Farber’s Cancer Institute that will directly impact my fight against ovarian cancer. 

In late April 2021 I was diagnosed with advanced stage ovarian cancer.  I chose to be treated at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston because of their outstanding reputation in treating cancer patients. It's what they do, and they do it well.

I am now 28 months into my cancer fight and about to start my 5th different treatment regimen. Existing ovarian cancer treatments are often only effective for short periods of time before the cancer figures out how to outsmart the treatments. Then a new treatment is required. Unfortunately, there is not an endless supply of ovarian cancer treatments at the ready.

The doctors, nurses, and researchers at D-F are amazing people who have dedicated their careers to helping their patients beat cancer.  In recent years, great progress has been made towards discovering new treatments, but more research still needs to be done to find a treatment that will completely kick cancer to the curb.

This is the third year that TeamCat is walking and raising money for the Jimmy Fund. If you have supported our team in the past two years, we thank you for your support and hope you will continue to support our cause. When you make a gift to TeamCat, you’re directly supporting Dana-Farber Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

Thank you for supporting our Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can crush cancer!
