On June 14, 2022, my life changed forever.
Not only did I test positive for COVID in the morning, but by the end of the day, I heard back from a recent biopsy that I have early stage breast cancer.
This all started with a routine mammogram in May, and then a follow-up mammogram to investigate some concerns.
Since then, I have received incredible care from the teams at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
After 2 surgeries, the surgeon confirmed that I am now CANCER FREE and I'm healing well!
Now it is my turn to give back to those that have supported me through my cancer journey.
There is still some road ahead for me, and many similar roads for the thousands still to receive care from Dana Farber… so it seemed fit that my family and I will all be participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk, 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.
