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

I am participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.

 In April, our 3 year old son António was diagnosed with Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma. He is currently recovering from surgery and undergoing Chemotherapy each week. António (Bubba) has shown us how strong he is by continuing to sing, dance, run, and play while going through recovery and his treatment.

Antonio has experienced several serious side effects from both surgery and chemotherapy and his team have had to change his treatment plan several times. He has spent many days, nights, weeks and months in the hospital where he has received the best care possible. We are very grateful that we live so close to Dana Farber and Boston Children's Hospital.

I am walking to raise money for families just like mine that have received the news that their child has cancer. I am also walking for anyone with a cancer diagnosis, survivors, and for anyone that has lost their battle.

Please donate and or join our team Bubba Strong!

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!
