“My brother, Jay, was diagnosed with NUT Midline Carcinoma last year and passed just 11 weeks later. We know how devastating it can be to lose a loved one to cancer. We want to help other families and support finding a cure–we feel Dana-Farber can make that happen.”

“As teenagers, Jay and I grew up playing golf. Not only was Jay passionate about golf, he was very passionate about his family and friends. We thought starting a Jimmy Fund Golf tournament would be a perfect way to honor his life and to bring together those who loved him.” – Kerry Dion, Friends of Jay Dion Golf Tournament #JimmyFundGolf

There are only 17 zebrafish left! Join Valerie, who named a zebrafish in honor of her niece, Lillian, 10, who is now cancer-free. “Lillian was my first niece. We have had a special bond since the day she was born. She was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia on December 24, 2009, just two months after turning 3 years old. I felt like the world was turning upside down."

"I tried to figure out ways that I could help. I turned to fundraising for Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund. I also wanted to do something in honor of Lillian, and a naming opportunity seemed fitting. The zebrafish was something Lillian could understand at her young age. When I brought her to see it, she was amazed that her name was on a fish and that she could touch it!” - Valerie.

Name your zebrafish today to honor a loved one, thank a caregiver, or provide a message of hope to patients. Learn more: http://budurl.com/lz3s.

Nevertheless, she showed up to walk and raise money for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, a place that has helped her sustain her spirit and vitality.” -Robyn, a participant in the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai. #JimmyFundWalk
