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

By participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund walk presented by Hyundai, our team is making every step count toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.

Your support goes directly to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge research and compassionate patient care. All donations will be supporting cutting edge research for Head and Neck Cancer at Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Head and Neck Cancer has been underfunded nationally and yet it is a cancer that is more recently diagnosed in young adults versus just in older adults.

 Cancer known as head and neck cancers are typically squamous cells that line mucosal surfaces such as throat, mouth, and voice box. They can also be found in salivary glands, sinuses and nerves of the head and neck. There are numerous causes of this cancer such as occupational exposure, alcohol and tobacco use, radiation exposure as was the cause in Eric's case, and numerous other risk factors. Head and Neck Cancers account for approximately 4% of all cancers in the United States. Patients who have this cancer should consider treatment options carefully after being fully informed of all and any potential side effects both short and long term in nature. This insidious disease needs to have more attention and funding brought forward so that we can improve the life expectancy and quality of life of patients with Head and Neck Cancer. The only way this can take place is through the support of people like you who are willing to raise funds in hope of finding a cure and improve the quality of life for these patients. It was always Eric dream to find a cure for this cancer as well as all cancers. 

Thank you for supporting our team in the Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can defy cancer!
