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

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.


In the fall of 2021 I went in for my annual exam and found out that I had lumps in a breast and abnormal cells from my Pap smear. It ended up being cervical and uterine cancer for which I had a radical hysterectomy in January 2022.I go back in August to do some follow up exams for both situations. Both my mom and sister have had cancer and survived, i’ve had family and friends both survive and pass away from this awful disease so I’m just another person on this long list of cancer patients and cancer survivors!

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!
