We have all been impacted by cancer. It is perhaps the one thing that every single one of us has in common. Cancer is not choosy or selective; it affects the weak and the strong, the sickly and the healthy, the old and the young.
In Feb. 2013, our friend, husband, son, brother, nephew, grandson and cousin, Jim was diagnosed with Stage 3B colon cancer at the age of 28. He underwent partial colectomy surgery at Lahey Clinic in Burlington, and after 3 weeks of recovery, began chemotherapy treatments.
Team ; (“semi colon” in honor of Jim’s remaining partial colon) was formed last year by friends and family who wanted to show their support by raising awareness and funds for cancer research and treatment.
Thanks to the love and encouragement of those around him, and the wonderful doctors and nurses at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, Jim received a clean bill of health at his 1-year checkup in Feb. 2014. Please join our team and run, walk, donate, or just to show your support to help others receive the same exceptional level of care and win the fight against cancer.
