I am a breast cancer survivor thanks to the Dana Farmer Cancer Institute!
That's why 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! I've walked with family members for several years now on our Team BRCA1 Strong and last year we became a PACESETTER Team raising over $10,000! We hope to reach that mark again this year with your help!
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. Just this year I have had friends from RI receiving care at the Dana Farber -- one for Ovarian Cancer and the other for Liver Cancer.
Although I am now breast-cancer-free, I'll never forget my visits to the Dana for chemo and checkups, often passing by the Jimmy Fund Clinic where young children were fighting their own battles against cancer.
Thank you for supporting my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts for all those -- young and older -- who have had their lives and their families' lives impacted by cancer.
Together, we can conquer cancer!
