I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk as part of team Perini Survivors. The Perini Family Survivors' Center was established to provide care and conduct patient-oriented research for adults in Dana-Farber's Adult Survivorship Program and for children in the David B. Perini, Jr. Quality of Life Clinic.
I began doing this walk years ago in honor of my mother in law, Marguerite, shortly after she was diagnosed with brain cancer. In February 2017 she lost her battle with cancer, as have many friends and family since that time.
It is my hope that the money raised by the Jimmy Fund walk will help Dana-Farber researchers to cure cancer — to increase the number of people who fight cancer and win.
Thank you so much for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk.
