Marathon Walk Pics

Click on a picture and you can view a self-paced slide show of Walking with Jane and Caring for Carcinoid’s pictures from 2012’s Jimmy Fund Marathon Walk. The combined team has raised over $18,000 so far, all of which will help the Walking with Jane Dybowski Fund for Neuroendocrine Cancer at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute continue to help find a cure for this difficult to diagnose cancer–and educate primary care physicians about the disease and its symptoms. You can still make contributions to our team and its members Until December 31. Or you can contribute to The Walking with Jane Dybowski Fund at DFCI at any time.

If you’d like to join us for all or part of next year’s Marathon Walk, email us at walkingwithjane@gmail.com. Our Marathon Walk team is part of the Jimmy Fund Marathon Walk that supports cancer research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Walking with Jane also participates in a number of other projects over the year, including two Relays for Life and a set of stories for print and online publications.

You can learn more about us and NET cancer at walkingwithjane.org. The site is updated several times a week and includes links to medical information, support groups, NET cancer blogs, and straight-forward explanations of the disease and current research in laymen’s terms.

We also produce a wide range of materials aimed at raising awareness about NET cancer including a pamphlet on NET and IBS, buttons, bracelets, water bottles, carry bags,and t-shirts. You can shop online at our store. All proceeds from the store go to support our Greater Fall River Relay for Life team.

Since May of 2011, Walking with Jane has generated over $100,000 for cancer research and patient support. We spend no money donated to us on overhead for Walking with Jane.
