WHY I'M FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

This is my third Jimmy Fund walk and this time I do it as someone who is back in treatment for the second time for pancreatic cancer.  I was inspired to walk by my brother-in-law, John Brooks, who has participated in every single Jimmy Fund Walk.  The fact that John is now in his early 80s hasn't slowed him down one bit, and we plan to walk the half marathon route together again this September. 

As a cancer patient dealing with a difficult to cure cancer, I appreciate that half of the money raised by this walk goes to support cutting-edge cancer research at Dana-Farber.  I have also seen first hand the financial impact that a cancer diagnosis has on many families, so I love the fact that the other half goes to support the Jimmy Fund. They are instrumental in providing support and compassionate care to families of pediatric cancer patients.  

Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
