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

Hello everyone!  I will be walking the half-marathon route in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk next month and I am hoping that if you have not yet made a donation, could you please consider donating to help me in my efforts to conquer cancer?  

Why am I walking for the Jimmy Fund?  I can imagine that most of you all know someone who has been affected by cancer. It is the second most common cause of death in the U.S.   According to the American Cancer Society, in 2022, approximately 609,360 people will die from cancer, equivalent to 1,670 deaths per day.

I will be walking to honor three amazing men who all passed away from cancer.  My father, Jack Ryan, was a Korean war veteran who was an amazing dad and husband.  He loved nothing more than to sit in the back yard and blast military marching music, because honestly, the only way to listen to it was at full volume.  He often said that he thought the neighbors would also like to enjoy it as well.  My cousin, Jimmy Corbett, gathered donations to take with him to NY after 9/11.  He left us too soon, too young, leaving behind two young boys and loving parents. And a dear friend, Peter Giambanco, who passed away earlier this year leaving behind friends and family who miss him terribly. 

Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Every amount, no matter how small, will truly make a difference and I do believe that together, we can conquer cancer!  Thank you very much!
