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

Dear Family and Friends,

Our team, Lee's Heroes began walking for Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund in 2018 when our Sister, Mom and Friend Lee Yniguez Taylor's son, Ryan started at Boston University...our tradition began.  Lee battled with stomach cancer in 2006 and ever since has been a model for us in caring, dedicating, giving, laughing, loving and living life to the fullest with a big smile.  She gave all of her passions above and beyond effort and most importantly prioritized her family and friends in her life. Lee left behind her husband and 3 young children, who now are amazing young loving adults...her legacy.

Our family is once again impacted with the loss of our brother, uncle and friend in Casey August Reyes Yniguez who battled colon cancer.  We will be co-honoring and co-dedicating our walk this year to Casey.  Casey and Lee were similar in their zest for living and sharing their love, laughter and smiles.  

Casey lived a full life in his 64 years.  He was an academic overachiever with two advanced college degrees in chemical engineering, a ranked chess player, an avid athlete who loved all sports, especially tennis.  He was a loving dad, brother, uncle, son, cousin and friend with a dedication and hard work ethic to his career.  He enjoyed his adventures in white water rafting and traveling, music, band playing and karaoke, exploring foods from many cultures and his social memberships and commitments as a Freemason and Shriner.  His most important achievement was raising and loving his son, coaching and guiding him in baseball and teaching him life's lessons.  His family was always a priority  and Casey was so proud of the wonderful young man his son has become.  Forever, father and son, best friends, Casey's legacy.  We miss Casey and feel so grateful and blessed having him in our lives and he will forever be in our hearts.   

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. 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.
