I am participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward supporting patients and families facing serious, advanced cancer and other illnesses.
When you make a gift to my Walk, you’re directly supporting The Pediatric Advanced Care Team (PACT) at Dana-Farber and our important quality of life fund. PACT seeks to provide excellent care, comfort, meaning, and support to patients and their families facing serious and life threatening conditions. PACT utilizes our Quality of Life Fund to support our patients and families facing some of the hardest times in their lives find meaning, strength, and quality by making each day as good as it can be. Your donations directly help us fund quality of life experiences such as a trip to a local aquarium, tickets to a favorite sporting event or show, helping a family get the things they need to care for a seriously ill child (an a/c or adaptive equipment not covered by insurance), quality of life items in the hospital such as mattress pads or extra toiletries, symptom support items such a aroma therapy or fans for breathlessness, books and resources for families facing serious illness or even bereavement, or even just a cup of coffee to a worried parent.
Please join me in supporting these families and making a true difference in their lives.
