Be an Arsenic Avenger with me. I am walking in the Jimmy Fund walk to cure cancer. As you may know I was diagnosed with APL leukemia in December 2022. I am one of the lucky ones. My treatment is unconventional and it consists of arsenic - hence the team name. After five rounds of chemotherapy, my remission rate will be 98%. That is unheard of. I want that remission rate for all cancer patients. I cannot explain the tremendous care I was given at both Brigham and Women’s hospital and at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. I feel like the least I can do is to participate so that all cancer patients can have the quality of care I had.
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!
