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!
