I am Walking for Team Erik

I am walking to support my friend Kristen. Her son Erik who is a close friend of Isla and Emmie was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2020. It was incredibly hard to fully support her and her amazing family especially due to the pandemic. Even something as simple as a hug came with challenges. 

Kristen has said time and time again on our walks how the Dana-Farber Cancer institute and Bostons Children hospital have been an unbelievable support to them. 

When she mentioned that she was going to walk the Boston marathon and if there was anyone crazy enough to do it with her I knew this was a way I could help her and raise money for such a fantastic cause. 

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.

Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts. Together, we can defy cancer!
