I’ll again be joining my fellow police chiefs for the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.
After an incredible walk last year in Pepperell, this year I plan to join everyone back on the marathon route in Boston. It’s been quite a year since I signed up for last year’s walk, shortly after my March 2021 diagnosis of stage four colon cancer. I have received excellent care from everyone at Dana Farber. My treatment continues as I still have innumerable tumors, but they are quite a bit smaller than they were a year ago!
My family and I would like to thank everyone for their overwhelming support over the past year or so. To those who supported last year’s walk financially, those who showed up to walk with us un Pepperell, everyone who supported my son’s marathon run for Dana Farber, everyone who has joined @team14strong on Instagram, and every call, text, card, thought, prayer and everything else – thank you so much!
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.
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can defy cancer!
