I am participating in the 2021 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
My nephew Michael was diagnosed with Leukemia in November 2018. Since then The Jimmy Fund has been a major part of Michael and our family's lives. The work done at The Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber helped Michael get to his last treatment in December of 2020! He is thriving as an energetic, happy, and silly six year old, finishing up the first grade.
Even though Michael will not have to go to The Jimmy Fund for treatments as often, me and my family will continue to walk and raise money to support the research done here. The patients and families before us raised money to support Michael and our family's fight against cancer, so we will always raise money for the patients and families who will fight this battle after us.
When you make a gift to my walk, you’re directly supporting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge science and compassionate patient care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can conquer cancer!
