Our Walk (Walk for Dee)
I have chosen to take part in the UMass Medicine Cancer Walk to fundraise and support the ongoing research and clinical trials program at the UMass Medicine Cancer Center of Excellence. Please sponsor me today and help all cancer patients diagnosed with and receiving treatment for cancer.
Team WALK FOR DEE will be again walking and raising both money and awareness as part of something great. Our team name will not change as my cousin/friend Doreen Pepin Durling is the reason we began walking. Dee lost her battle with Ovarian Cancer on 10/04/2004 and I started this walk to keep her memory alive. We as Team WALK FOR DEE do however walk in honor of ALL loved ones who have battled the evils of Cancer. We have a universal goal to eventually find a cure.
We are also walking in memory of the following family and friends that lost their courageous batttles with Cancer: Ronnie Pepin, Robert Pepin, Edwin "MOOSE" Morse, Maria Caraballo and Lillian Ward. We walk in honor of our followin loved ones who are in remission or currently battling Cancer: Barbara Spencer, Antonio " PACO" Bultron, Dana McKissick, Gloria Douglass,Chad Bousquet, Darlene Kusy and Miriam Santos.
If you would like to join our team please message me. There is a minimum of $100 in donations is required for each walker. I have a few online fundraisers planned so raising money is very simple.
Also if you would like me to add one of your loved ones names to our honor list please let me know as I will be adding a list shortly.
The UMass Medicine Cancer Center of Excellence provides patient- and family-centered care in an environment of compassion and respect. Physicians are working together with scientists to bring the most advanced cancer research, clinical trials and latest treatments to every diagnosis. This translates into increased quality of care and improvement in patient outcomes. The monies I raise will be used to increase the scope and progress of this ground-breaking clinical trials program. Our philanthropic support to the Cancer Center will provide patients more effective treatments with less side effects.
Your donation makes a difference in someone’s life! Please make a donation in honor of those who have been impacted by this disease and help support the research that will prevent others from being affected.
Donating to the UMass Medicine Cancer Center of Excellence through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts. Please share this page with everyone you know.
