As many of you know, or are now finding out, my mom was diagnosed with stage IV ovarian cancer back in April. This horrible disease has touched my family through a variety of forms over the years, so I am fighting back by participating in the 2021 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, to raise money for cancer research. While our team goal is $3,000, if we are able to reach $5,000 we can determine that we want our donations to specifically go toward ovarian cancer research.
We will be walking on Sunday, October 3rd. My mom has been making the trek from KPT down to Boston every 3 weeks or so to get the best care she could from the teams at Dana Farber and Brigham and Women’s 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!
