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

I am participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without 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 research and compassionate patient care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.



During the (almost) two year journey through cancer with my step dad, he has been to Dana farber more times than I can count. My sister and Mom  remember walking around the neighborhood waiting for surgical updates from Bill’s major tumor removal surgery. They saw the Jimmy Fund statue and walked Jimmy Fund Way. Bill had radiation for 30 days straight. They described it as  sobering and humbling to see those little children being wheeled into their own treatments. Bill is 44 and this is so unfair, but even Bill puts his own sorrow aside to appreciate how truly cruel and unjust this cancer is to these tiny humans. In true Bill spirit, he wishes to see funds raised to this wonderful foundation. Let’s cross the finish line together, to get one step closer to a world without cancer. It would mean so much to me for Bill to be able to see us hit our goal, whether you’re just donating or joining our team. 

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


We are doing the 5k.
