Conquer Cancer with Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund!
Conquer Cancer with Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund!

Why am I running?

This November, I will be running the NYC Marathon in honor of Francesca “Beans” Kaczynski and Team Beans, a charity her parents founded as part of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Francesca was taken too soon by a brain tumor known as ATRT,  the most common brain cancer in infants and one of the deadliest, at just nine months old. Since then, her parents Rachel and Andy have fought tirelessly so that other parents and children do not have to suffer the fate of their dear Beans.

When Francesca got sick, her journalist parents threw themselves into the worst reporting project ever: learning everything they could about this terrifying disease and childhood cancer. The truth is that childhood cancer is severely underfunded. Just 4% of cancer research funds goes toward treating children, meaning that therapies are often harsh for children and less effective. Amazingly, they have raised more than $3 million for children’s cancer research since Beans died on Christmas Eve 2020. I am running to help them raise even more money to help fund breakthroughs for more pediatric cancer patients.
