THE STORY:

One never plans on an illness but can you imagine you or yours, happily 5 months pregnant and being diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma like Tara Ryan-Byrne was at 29 years old. Surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and all of the wonderful care from family, friends, doctors and nurses at Dana Farber helped save Tara AND deliver a healthy baby boy, Senan. What a miracle!

The Kick Cancer Celebration was started 6 years ago to celebrate Tara being cancer free - and here were are celebrating 11 free! This fundraiser has raised over $140,000 for Dana Farber & The Jimmy Fund in the past 6 celebrations. This year Michele Skafas and Shaina Bendzewicz are racing to raise even more, and will run 26.2 miles to get there.

DONATIONS: Donations are CASH OR CHECK ONLY (sorry for any inconvenience)

Donations can be made payable to: 11 Free Kick Cancer Celebration c/o Ryan

18 Coates Lane

Bradford, MA 01835

**IMPORTANT: Please put SHAINA or MICHELE in the memo of the check or make a note of which name if sending cash, this is how they will track money that each of the girls have raised.

Nearly 1.2 million people are expected to be diagnosed with cancer this year. The Jimmy Fund supports cancer research and care at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI). Today, nearly 80% of children and 60% of adults with cancer are surviving. Your donations / gifts provide hope to adults and children with cancer worldwide. Your support will help fund innovative cancer research and treatment programs at DFCI.

THANK YOU!!!!!
