JAKSAA- Let's Get Saila to her "Finnish" Line!

Wife, Mother, Ironman Triathlete, marathoner, animal lover, best friend to many, world citizen, ball of energy… are all used to describe our incredible friend Saila Consalvi.

In June of 2017, as a 35 year-old non-smoker, Saila was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer.  JAKSAA was Saila’s motto. Translating to “STRENGTH TO ENDURE” in her native Finnish language, this word encapsulated Saila’s approach – Dream big and fight together until we win no matter the obstacle. 

As many of you know,  Saila’s journey with cancer came to an end on July 6th 2022. Over the past 5 years, she lived life to the absolute fullest and didn’t waste a moment. She ran 14 marathons, travelled the world, got married to her best friend and soul mate, Jay Consalvi and became a mother in January of 2022 to Enzo Anthony. Saila's legacy will be that she dreamed big, lived big, and she always faced a challenge head on with the biggest smile on her beautiful face. Her approach to life and adversity inspired so many to be brave in the face of immense difficulty. A gift that will remain with so many of us until we are able to meet Saila again.

Remarkably, since her diagnosis, Saila devoted herself to fundraising for Dana Farber, Dr. Pasi Janne and his groundbreaking lung cancer research. Her goal was to raise $1 million and to date, she has raised $ 433,600! 

Cancer won’t define her or her story, but but with your support, we can get her to fundraising goal and beyond. Please consider donating to benefit Dr. Janne's life saving research at Dana Farber. Please donate via this page to help Saila reach her  goal and beyond! JAKSAA!
