My Husband, Owen McGivern, is Raising Funds for Neuroendocrine Cancer Research

On Sunday, September 21, my husband Owen will be raising funds to support the neuroendocrine tumor program (NET) at Dana Farber Cancer Institute. As one of more than 8,500 anticipated participants, he’s pledged to raise funds that will be used to support critical cancer research and innovative care for this rare cancer at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. I'm writing to you today to ask for your support.

Owen will be on the Caring for Carcinoid/Walking with Jane and Anne Team,, participating as a virtual walker.  Harry Proudfoot is the team leader.  He can be reached at

Please feel free to join the team if you would like to walk at this event or join as a virtual walker to raise funds for research and cures.  If you join the team, you will get a team t-shirt.  The design is shown below.

Please join Owen in the fight against cancer by considering a contribution of $26.20 or more toward his fundraising efforts.

- Make a gift online: Visit the Walk website at and click "Give." Search for Owen's name and follow the instructions on his fundraising page to make a gift online, or go to Owen's fundraising page at

- Send in a check: Write a check payable to "Jimmy Fund Walk" and send it to
