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.
This past April /May I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which turned out to be a nasty cancer, and had a craniotomy surgery to remove the tumor. I’m now in the “treatment phase” undergoing radiation and oral chemo and am so grateful to my team at Dana for their constant care & compassion and telling me that I am a “statistic of one”💪 Walking this 5k is just a small way for me to say “Thank You!” to my amazing Doctors, Nurses, and Techs. My team is the “7 Fs”: Faith ✝,Family❤Friends🥰,Fortitude💪,Fierce Fight😤👊🏻,F🤬cancer!
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can defy cancer!
