I am participating in the 2022 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.
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.
In May 2021 my mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer. While she remains on chemotherapy every other week, she continues to fight this diagnosis with a smile on her face. On October 2nd we will walk as a family in support of mom and the many others who are dealing with this horrible diagnosis.
We are also walking in honor of Nicole's grandfather who is currently battling lymphoma and in memory of her grandmother who passed away two months before she was born (in 1988) from breast cancer and my grandfather who passed away from cancer (in 1980).Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can defy cancer!
