It seems like everyone you talk to lately has suffered or knows someone who has suffered from cancer. This year it became very personal to us. For over 5 years Amy has been in and out of hospitals and doctor’s offices with several cancer scares; recently losing a pregnancy to a tumor. At the same time, Rebecca became pregnant with her first child only to find out 13 weeks later she has breast cancer. Both of us are in are thirties and currently in treatment for our individual disease. Sarah, Rebecca’s sister and Amy’s best friend, has continued to support both of us during these rough times. After talking to each other and sharing stories of other family members who are battling cancer, we all knew we had to do something now to change this disease.

A 5k run, walk or crawl is a fun way to get people together, spread awareness and raise money for a great cause! Cancer affects men and women, any race and at every age and sadly has become a part of all our lives. For over 50 years, Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund has been committed to providing cancer patients with the best treatment available today while developing tomorrow's cures through cutting-edge research.
Please join us this year and together we will not lay down to cancer!
