{September 26, 2016}   My sister…my hero

Today my sister was a true hero, or heroine, whichever way to put it. 

Today she was literally a hero, a Jimmy Fund Hero, she was Mile Marker 17! Placard with her name, photo and quote.

I’ve told you about my sister, she is a breast cancer survivor and the Jimmy Fund raises awareness and funds for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Last year, GES raised over $1500 that she became a Jimmy Fund Hero. 

There are different events that you are invited to as a Jimmy Fund Hero, I don’t remember if you reveal when I talked about going to the summit at Fenway with her. There were other things as well and today, she walked the 5k, she was paired with a corporate team and she was represented along the route. 

I don’t know how much she raised just for this event, it had to be at least $1500, but I know she  surpassed that, she is a star, after all!

She walked for herself, our mom, grandmother and so many others in her life that have been touched by cancer. If dad and I are proud, I know those people are too. Words really can’t express how proud of her I am, I think you might have an idea. 

Congrats to my sister for being a hero, she’s always been mine, I guess I can share her for a day!
