“When we started our golf tournament 3 years ago, we had the event in honor of a co-worker’s daughter who was being treated for a very rare cancer. The pure happiness that we saw on her face that day was beyond anything I can describe–for in that moment she forgot about her cancer and was able to just be a kid. After that year, we decided that Dana-Farber was our charity, and hope that together we can help bring smiles and create a cancer-free world.” – Tavana Collins, Dell EMC Mini Golf Tournament #JimmyFundGolf

“My greatest struggle during treatment was seeing everyone around me feel bad for me or treat me differently. I missed out on sports and spending time with friends which was hard for me. A big thing was not having hair and being a teenager going to high school. I’m so happy to be done with chemo. I can’t wait to have my hair grow back.” –Madison, pictured here on her last day of chemotherapy

“Dana-Farber Cancer Institute saved my life; it helped me endure a two-year battle with lymphoma and come out cancer-free. I'm able to live a healthy and normal life because of them,” shares Stephen, a patient at Dana-Farber’s Jimmy Fund Clinic who attended last year’s Dance Party. “This event is one of the many ways in which I can express the gratitude I have for Dana-Farber and all that they have done for me and fellow cancer patients.”

Stephen, a junior at the College of the Holy Cross, is currently spending his spring semester abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Money raised during the Jimmy Fund Dance Party presented by Capital One supports lifesaving cancer research and care for patients like Stephen.

"I am continuously amazed by the doctors, nurses, and staff that dedicate their lives to helping patients and their families. I’m lucky and only have to visit for my yearly check-up, but every time I step foot into the clinic I feel like I am coming home. Everyone still remembers me by name and asks about my family. Quite simply, Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund saved my life. I would not be standing on this earth if it were not for them. It may be strange to say, but I feel lucky to be part of the Dana-Farber family."

Kyndra is participating in #JimmyFundFitFest presented by Reebok to give back to the place that saved her life. Join her for the outdoor fitness festival featuring five classes taught from Boston’s top trainers to support our ongoing mission to conquer cancer. Register now: http://budurl.com/sfet
