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

Hi Friends and Family, 

I am going to keep the spirits light because that's what my mom is. I thought she was the brightest light before cancer but now her light, strength, positivity and grace are blinding. She has always been my role model and I know in different ways and at different times, she has been yours too. Even if you haven't met Lynny, you've met me; and while I'm not sure I'll ever be as wise as her, she makes up most of my heart and mind.

When she was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in 2020 and admitted to the hospital, our family was told to prepare for a very devastating outcome. The most difficult 2 years later...  my mom’s fierce courage, her refusal to let cancer win, love and support from all of you, her beautiful grand-babies, perfect grand-puppies, her never lose faith husband, her three children, and the doctors, PTs, nurses, scientists at Dana Farber Cancer Institute of Boston allow us to walk miles and miles standing up to cancer with my mom leading the charge. 

I have to share this fact with you because we have to do something about it: 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime- that’s one person every 12 minutes in the U.S. These are our loved ones; grandmothers, mothers, sisters, friends, and no one is exempt. You can help my mom and so many others in the fight against cancer by donating to our walk. I know in one way or another you have all experienced the pain of cancer infiltrating your life--  I am so sorry. Please share this note with anyone else who would like to help and let me know how I can support you in whatever uphill battle you are facing. 

Love and gratitude,
Sara
