I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Influence Central for the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Whenever I see my Grandma my spirit lightens and I can’t stop smiling. She’s my hero. At 95 years young she’s experienced a life I can’t imagine, lost her Husband, battled breast cancer and yet she shines. Her energy, her spirit and her youth are so present you can’t help but love spending time with her. The love I share for this wonderful woman is why this September I’ll be lacing up (one day after my 30th birthday!) and participating in the 2015 Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, which supports Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
My Grandma is a phenomenal woman indeed. She doesn’t talk much about her battle with breast cancer, and I can only imagine what she and my Grandfather experienced when they received her diagnosis. No family should have to experience the loss of losing a family member to cancer, yet so many face this challenging news every day. Since 1948, the Jimmy Fund has raised critical funds for adult and pediatric cancer care and research through community fundraising events.
