CAPALBO STRONG!

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. I am doing this in memory of my cousin, Charlie Capalbo, who passed away from pediatric cancer in April, one month before his 24th birthday. 

He was a fierce fighter against his disease, getting to remission three times, surviving countless and some rare life-threatening complications.

He maxed out every chemo, radiation, immunotherapy available, and also had a bone marrow transplant in 2019 from his younger brother Will that bought him some good time.

He overcame lower extremity paralysis from treatment twice, relearning to walk both times while at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital.

Ultimately his medical team and their peer experts ran out of options for him.

He spent 745 nights in-patient over the five-year period.

He was not afraid to die and never once complained.

Before he died we promised him that we would do our best to raise funds for AML research for the rest of our lives, so that someday no child (or adult) has to be told there are no more treatment options.

Your support will go directly to pediatric leukemia research in Dr. Scott Armstrong’s lab at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute  in memory of Charlie Capalbo.

Thank you!
