WHY WE'RE FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

In December 2018, my husband, Chris Fazio, was diagnosed with Stage IV melanoma, with tumors in his sphenoid, cerebellum, lungs, liver, and kidney. 

In the year-and-a-half since his diagnosis, Chris has underwent 2 brain surgeries, 6 days of radiation, and has continued to receive immunotherapy every 4 weeks. He is considered to be 99% clear of the cancer in his body. He will continue receiving immunotherapy treatments until at least December of this year, and then we'll reevaluate what comes next. As Dr. Izar and Dr. Liu often say... we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

We were so lucky to find ourselves in a city with incredible options for top tier medical care and luckier to find the care team in the Melanoma Clinic at Dana-Farber. The doctors, nurses, specialists, and PAs have been nothing short of amazing and his great progress is a testament to their dedication to a cure for my husband's cancer.

As we look ahead to the next phase of our lives, we are so grateful to be able to give back to the amazing cancer institute that has given us our lives back. We appreciate your donation and continued support for Chris and #TeamFaz. #FazStrong
