WHY WE'RE FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

By participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk our team is making every step count toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer. 

Team Hero Pup is named after my golden retriever Bentley, who saved my life. He is now one of my guardian angels but I will forever be grateful to him. It is an honor to be able to participate again in this event and always a very special day for myself and my family. 


For those of you who aren't familiar with my story... in 2012 my golden retriever Bentley knocked me over and I hit my head.  I ended up in the ER and scans to rule out a concussion showed a lime size tumor in my right frontal lobe. I had brain surgery followed by a year of chemotherapy. Upon completion, I transferred to Dana Farber for my care and monitoring. Without Bentley knocking me over April 25, 2012, doctors told me I wouldn't be here today. 


Since 2012 I have undergone 3 brain surgeries, two rounds of brain radiation, multiple rounds of chemotherapy, and the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial. I am now living with the highest grade brain tumor Glioblastoma Multiforme. I am fortunate to be in the 5% of patients that live 5 years with this diagnosis. 


I humbly ask for your support yet again for something so close to my heart. 

 Donations will go  directly to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge research and compassionate patient care. Funds raised through the Jimmy Fund Walk enable Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.

Thank you for supporting Team Hero Pup in the Jimmy Fund Walk. I hope that one day there will be a world without cancer!

Team Hero Pup is named after my golden retriever Bentley, who saved my life. He is now one of my guardian angels but I will forever be grateful to him. It is an honor to be able to participate again in this event and always a very special day for myself and my family. 


For those of you who aren't familiar with my story... in 2012 my golden retriever Bentley knocked me over and I hit my head.  I ended up in the ER and scans to rule out a concussion showed a lime size tumor in my right frontal lobe.

Since 2012 I have undergone 3 brain surgeries, two rounds of brain radiation, multiple rounds of chemotherapy, and the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial. I am now living with the highest grade brain tumor Glioblastoma Multiforme. I am fortunate to be in the 5% of patients that live 5 years with this diagnosis.
