|Why The Jimmy Fund?|
The Jimmy Fund is a charity which raises money solely to support adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts.
Throughout our lives, we all are effected, in one way or another, by this terrible disease. Whether it be a family member, friend, colleague, or yourself, cancer can be a life changing event. Personally, I have been effected multiple times as I have lost both family members and close friends to different forms of cancer. One of the reasons I decided to join Dana-Farber Cancer Institute as an employee is to have a direct impact on the fight against cancer.
In honor of the loved-ones who have lost the battle with cancer in my life (both of my grandmothers), as well as the ones who have beat the disease (my mom!), I plan on doing everything I can to bring a stop to this disease.
Where does the money go?
86% of every dollar goes to the following:
- Advances in total patient care
- Basic research
- Helps increase the number of genetically-based clinical trials
- Post-treatment care
- Maintaining a world-class faculty
- Sustaining state-of-the-art facilities
- Brings education, screening, and treatment to Boston neighborhoods
14% of every dollar goes to the following:
- Administrative costs
What am I doing to help raise money?
Besides participating in the Sunrise To Sunset Golf Tournament at The International Golf Club on October 15, I plan on collaborating with my fellow teammates by hosting a handful of fundraising events in the Boston area. Once these events have been scheduled, I will be inviting all to attend to help share your support for this great foundation.
Thank you for supporting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund. Your contribution is greatly appreciated!
