Cancer strikes one in three individuals, but as with anything else, it’s far less daunting when you don’t have to face it alone. Thanks to the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk to benefit Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, cancer patients and the scientists working to halt the disease for good now have even more support than ever in their courageous fight. As in the past, Juran Institute is doing its part to rally to the cause.
This time around, Joseph M. De Feo–son of Juran President & CEO Joseph A. De Feo–will be participating in the marathon on September 18, in support of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund. The funds raised will go toward providing care and conducting groundbreaking research, and we encourage you to help Joseph in his endeavor by visiting his Jimmy Fund Walk web page to make a donation, whatever the amount.
“Cancer touches all of us, and we must stop this disease in its tracks,” said Joseph. “Every dollar I raise is another step along the road to finding cures for cancer. Please support my efforts by giving generously, and help reach the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer. I will be walking in honor of my mom, and all cancer patients that are fighting every day.”
Joseph has currently raised $1,315 of his fundraising goal of $2,000. If you’d like to help him reach that number, head over the Jimmy Fund website and pledge your support now.
