A Story from the Jimmy Fund

We are beyond happy to have The Jimmy Fund as our main charity for the NERPHC. We will be raising money not only for a great charity but for the families like this one:

“I was pregnant when I was diagnosed with cancer in June of 2019. I was alone when the radiologist called with my results… I sat in my closet clutching my pregnant belly when I heard my husband come in and run through our home to find me. We laid there on the closet floor overwhelmed by the fact that we didn’t know how advanced my cancer was or what was to come for our family.”

“After 20 weeks of chemo, 17 rounds of targeted therapy, 5 weeks of radiation, and a mastectomy with reconstruction, I am on the other side, but my resilience was tested every step of the way. I am eternally grateful to Dana-Farber. It became our second home and we felt we had all the support and resources we needed. Because of them, I get to watch my daughter grow up. More than anything, I’m excited to be a family that can now go to play dates instead of chemo sessions.”
