I have been lucky enough to run five marathons for Dana-Farber. If you could be at the group runs and the pasta dinners and hear the stories of how the funds that we raise by running the marathon makes research possible that has saved lives, you would run too!!!
My mother was the inspiration for my first marathon, and she continues to inspire me every day. She died of pancreatic cancer, as did her mother. As you might imagine, this was heartbreaking, but it is also terrifying.
I run because I would like to be a grandmother.
I run because I want my kids to be able to grow old and wrinkly.
ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of every dollar raised by the DFMC team supports the Claudia Adams Barr Program in Innovative Basic Cancer Research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute!!!! These funds are fueling some of today's most promising basic cancer research.
Thank you for your support! Together, we're headed toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.
