Please help us support pediatric cancer research

Posted in Uncategorized by scarsonmsm on July 29, 2013

As many of you know, my son Daniel is a cancer survivor.  He was diagnosed with a kidney tumor at the age of 2 1/2, underwent surgery to remove the kidney and was treated with chemotherapy for 18 months at the Dana Farber Jimmy Fund Clinic.  In large part due to the wonderful care he received at Boston Children’s Hospital and the Jimmy Fund Clinic, he completed all of his treatments without a single complication.  This month, he had his final follow-up appointment, and is now looking forward to a normal, healthy life.

This year, as we’ve done several years since his treatment, our family is walking in the annual Jimmy Fund Walk to ensure that more children will receive the same amazing care that Daniel received.  While we were grateful to take him to his final appointment, we once again saw the shock and anguish of the families of children new to the clinic.  With your help, we can ensure that more of these families have stories to share like ours.
