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.
2021 was a year I will never forget. In January I lost my mother to lung cancer that had gone undetected and took her from us within 13 days of her admission to the hospital. Losing her was crushing to my brother and I and our families because we were not allowed to visit her in the hospital due to the Covid regulations that the hospitals had enacted. 9 months later my brother was diagnosed with colon cancer. And 28 days later my first colonoscopy produced the exact same result. Cancer had become all too common a word in my family last year. Fortunately my brother, after surgery and chemo, is doing great. I was lucky to have my cancer discovered very early which allowed me to bypass chemotherapy. So now that I am doing well, I have decided to do the Jimmy Fund walk for the 2nd time in honor of my mother and my brother. I believe that the Jimmy Fund is one of the greatest charitable organizations in the world!! What they do to treat patients and assist the patients and their families with the physical and emotional struggles this disease creates is amazing!! I thank you greatly for the support of a donation that I know will help people that are going thru what my brother and I dealt with 12 months ago. Thank you!!Thank you!!
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can defy cancer!
