Supporting cancer research and treatment has been a priority of mine since my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 40 years old and then again when she was 50 years old. If I wasn't committed to supporting a quest for a cure for this insidious disease following her diagnoses, I became even more committed after losing my dear friend Tobi Klonecki following her diagnosis of stage 4 breast cancer when she was only 37 years old. She fought with grace and dignity, only to lose the battle five years later.
Dana-Farber runners set the pace in the fight against cancer by raising funds to support groundbreaking research and extraordinary patient care. Thanks to your support, Dana-Farber continues to make strides towards the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.
Since its founding in 1947, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute has been committed to providing adults and children with cancer the best treatment available today while developing tomorrow’s cures through cutting-edge research. It is with this hope that I am running my last marathon in support of this incredibly special cause.
Thank you for your support!
