WHY I’M FUNDRAISING WITH THE DANA-FARBER MARATHON CHALLENGE TO FIGHT CANCER

This will be my 5th year on the DFMC team, which raises money for the Claudia Adams Barr Foundation. These funds are fueling some of today's most promising cancer research. In the past 4 years, I have raised nearly $40,000 for cancer research at DFCI!

This year I am running especially in the honor of my neighbor and friend, Dave Randa. This summer, Dave was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The cancer attacked his blood supply resulting in multiple bone fractures in his back. Due to the outstanding care by Mass General Brigham and Dana-Farber, he is now cancer-free and getting back to 100 percent. 

I am setting my fundraising goal at $13,100. I am aiming high because I know that many people’s lives have been impacted by cancer, and that the Barr Foundation at DFCI will contribute to scientific breakthroughs in a variety of research disciplines, and lead to more stories like Dave’s. 

I would be grateful if you could consider donating to my fundraising page! A donation of any amount will help me reach my personal goal, and help Dana-Farber with their ultimate goal: a world without cancer.
