WHY I’M FUNDRAISING WITH DANA-FARBER TO DEFY CANCER

Jonah was just shy of his second birthday when he was diagnosed with a very rare pediatric brain tumor called ETMR (Embryonal Tumor with Multilayer Rosettes). Jonah fought valiantly alongside his medical team at Dana Farber, but sadly passed away in November 2021. He was just five years old.

Jonah's tumor was donated to Dr. Mariella Filbin's lab at Dana Farber to conduct research aimed at finding a cure for ETMR and is collaborating with others scientists around the world that are also conducting research on ETMR and other rare brain tumors of early childhood. We are driven to give other children with this devastating tumor a better chance of survival. 

Days before Jonah's passing, his mom, Suzy, promised him that she would run another Boston Marathon in his honor. During his treatment Jonah lost the ability to walk and run, but often asked if he could "Run like Sonic.”  On April 17th, 2023 our team will honor Jonah and his legacy as we “Run like Sonic” in the Boston Marathon.

We are asking you to help support our Boston Marathon fundraiser with a donation of sponsorship. Your tax-deductible sponsorship gift will go directly to support research in ETMR brain cancer in Dr. Mariella Filbin’s Laboratory at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

Any amount, great or small, brings us closer to our goal to improve the survival of children with this rare brain cancer.
