Alanna's personal story:
I am walking to support my friend, Kristen Whaley, who was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 35. After going through extensive treatment at Dana Farber, she is currently strong and healthy, and raising money to help Dana Farber use their cutting edge research and treatments on other patients.
Additionally, I lost my mother to breast cancer and my father to another form of cancer; kicking cancer's butt is always a cause I will support, and I look forward to walking beside Kristen on October 2nd.
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.
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can defy cancer!
