WHY WE'RE FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

By participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, Team BRCA1 Strong is making every step count toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.

Your support goes directly to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s unique 50-50 balance between cutting-edge research and compassionate patient care. Funds raised through the Jimmy Fund Walk enable Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families.

Our team is called BRCA1 Strong because several of us carry the BRCA1 gene mutation that increases the chance of breast cancer, for both women and MEN, and also increases our chance of ovarian cancer. Several team members  are breast cancer survivors and received treatment at the Dana-Farber. At least one team member is an ovarian cancer survivor also treated at Dana-Farber. 

By supporting the Dana's researchers and medical staff -- among the best in the world -- we hope that future generations of our family (and all families with genetic mutations like BRCA1) will face a much more brighter future.

Our Lynch family has lost an aunt and two cousins to breast cancer. And our family history includes our Grandfather James Lynch, who died of cancer in his "chest" decades before this genetic mutation was discovered. Several of us have inherited the BRCA1 gene and have passed it on to our children. And many other family members and friends have had their lives impacted by all kinds of cancer, as well. 

Dana Farber researchers are working on cures and treatments for all kinds of genetic and other cancers. You generosity to our 2022 Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk can make a difference for future generations of many families!

Thank you for supporting our team in the Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can defy cancer!
