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

As most of you know, on 12/1/2020,  my son Jacob had a seizure while at home with me. He was taken by ambulance to the hospital and was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor (Mesenchymal Chondrosarcoma) and on 12/4/20 had brain surgery to remove it. Jacob was given a reasonable prognosis. However, due to the aggressive nature of this type of cancer and concerns about it coming back, Jacob had 6 weeks of radiation and 42 weeks of Chemotherapy. As of Today, Jacob has no evidence of disease, looking good and feeling great. He is still getting scanned every 3 months to make the sure cancer is not coming back.  Without Dana Farber and the doctors, this story may have been different.  My wife Zoe and I have started the Mesenchymal Chondrosarcoma Research Fishman Family Sarcoma Research Fund to research this very rare cancer in hopes of one day finding a cure!


By participating in the 2024 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 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 our team in the Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can defy cancer!
