I am participating in the 2020 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way 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 science and highly compassionate cancer care. Your support allows Dana-Farber leaders to enhance programs and initiatives that serve pediatric and adult patients and their families
At this unprecedented time in our lives with the global pandemic and the unrest in our country, it is even more important this year that we raise money for the Jimmy Fund.
Over the years I have seen great strides in the treatment of cancer. I have seen people live whereas they would not have survived even when I started walking 11 years ago. Many others have had years added to their lives. This is why I continue walking even at this very weird, uncomfortable time.
In just a few years, what is happening today will be a memory. We will look back and breathe a sigh of relief that things have returned to normal, even if it is a modified normal. But, the fight to eradicate cancer can't stop.
There will not be a Finish Line this year as everyone who is walking is walking in their neighborhoods or where they can but not necessarily on the Boston Marathon route.
The Finish Line at Copley Place is not what counts. What counts is your support.
Please donate whatever you can. Every dollar counts. It is greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much for your support.
