Hello Team Lung Cancer Supporters
I am participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, to support lung cancer patients and their caregivers and to take steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer. I am very grateful for the wonderful care I am receiving at Dana Farber and for the caring staff who are supporting me.
When you make a gift to my Walk, you’re directly supporting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge research and compassionate patient care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families. This is a very exciting time for lung cancer research, enhancing our understanding of the many different types of lung cancer and resulting in many more options for treatment. I feel very fortunate that advocacy around funding for lung cancer is increasing and that the extent of lung cancer and its complexity is becoming better understood.
Thank you for considering supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can take steps to defy cancer.
You can donate either through my fundraising page or mail in a check to the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund, PO Box 3595, Boston, MA 02241-3595. Please include my name and my participant number (Participant ID is 2279003)
Again, thanks so much. Ruth
