I am giving total of $ 50.00 to the Jimmy Fund on July 5th the death of Ted williams and on August 30, 2013 the birthday of ted williams $25.00 each day. In honor of Ted Williams. I have had sink cancer in my life time
In March of 2013 I was diagnosed with Adrenocortical carcinoma, a very rare cancer of the adrenal gland. I had my surgery in May 2013 to remove the tumor, and now I am a patient at Dana Farber. I have found all the people, doctors and nurses wonderful to deal with. As I am just starting out with my chemo treatments, I know that I am in good hands. Thank you WEEI for all that you do with the telethon and helping Dana Farber raise money for further research to "strike out cancer"
Godspeed to EVERYBODY involved in any aspect of the tremendous work done by the Jimmy Fund: patients and their families, doctors, nurses, researchers, care-givers, WEEI and NESN, the Red Sox ... EVERYBODY! Thank you and God bless you all!
I was diagnosed in 1984 with a rare form of rhabdo miyo sarcoma. By most estimates I had less than a 5% chance of survival. A family friend said my parents needed to get me to Children's and the Jimmy Fund. Shortly after Labor Day we packed up and moved to Brookline. For two years I went through chemo and radiation. As bad as it was at times, to this day I am grateful for the Red Sox, the Jimmy Fund, Children's Hospital and the thousands of people who have donated from their hearts.
My gift this year is in memory of Leah Tepper. She touched so many people in a very special way. When the little things in daily life bother us we would all do well to remember Leah's smile and courage.
A little girl with a rare form of brain cancer who is now in remission has taught me with positivity the world is possible. You are all very brave and always look to smile life is precious!love you little miss alli
A few years ago I was on the telethon during my battle with ALCL. I'm now getting ready to finish up my last few days at my first summer job before starting my senior year in high school. I never would have gotten here without the Jimmy Fund. Please donate so more wonderful little children can make it to a day like this.
I volunteered today and had the opportunity to speak to the wonderful people that donated to the Jimmy Fund. So thankful to be part of such a great cause and to be able to speak to amazing people and talk to them about why the Jimmy Fund and Dana Farber are important to them.
I'm orig. from Lynn, MA. now living in Charleston S>C>. GOD Bless your GREAT work w/ the Telethon ever Y ear.
I challenge my Fellow Veterans 2 donate.

Six years ago I lost both my brother and father to this disease. Six months later, I was diagnosed. I am now a 5 year survivor and try to give a little every year. The stories are heart wrenching and bring back so many memories that I find myself unable to listen. I encourage everyone to help this noble cause and help out a child and their family during difficult times.
Each year I look forward to the telethon. Listening to everyone share their stories and the great job everyone does to make these 2 days happen. I have lost my Dad,many friends to cancer and some special people in my life today fighting this disease. You all are an inspiration to me and I want to thank you for showing me "how each day in our lives is so precious". Thank you WEEI,Dana Faber and the Jimmy Fund.
Our Daughter Mila Rose Palhais, now 4 years old, was diagnosed last winter with a rare eye cancer that has since claimed her left eye. Her eye was removed this June and she is learning how to now go through life with vision in only 1 eye. She is making great strides towards becoming a cancer survivor. It will take time, many more tests, and certainly many more trips to Boston, but we are in it to win it! We have learned so much while going through this journey with cancer in our lives. It is amazing to watch our daughter fight this cancer creature with ease. Her strength makes us stronger. We owe so much to Dana Farber, The Jimmy Fund Clinic, Children's Hospital and Mila's team of doctors. Without them, we as a family would not be where we are today. Thank you Weei and NESN for helping in this fight against cancer. Your efforts help make so many things possible for all families touched by cancer. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
I lost one of my best friends to lung cancer, another friend to breast cancer and an aunt and an uncle to stomach cancer. My cousin is in the final stages of bladder cancer. What great work by Dana Farber! Keep it up.

Great job guys, we're so looking forward to the next 2 days! You do a great job, and this Telethon highlights the doctors, nurses, and especially, the beautiful kids at our Jimmy Fund!
What wonderful work you do! I am proud to be from New England and to have such great professionals available here!
We've been driving from the Berkshires to Boston for almost 18 years so my father can participate in both treatment and research for prostate cancer. Dana Farber and the Jimmy Fund may not be near... but they are both VERY dear to our hearts. Just like the Red Sox!!
