Welcome to My Fred's Team Page

Name: Jessica Dovico
Event: Philadelphia Marathon
Date: 11/24/2019


In March of 2018 I was diagnosed with metastatic papillary thyroid carcinoma. I was fortunate enough to have a friend who  works at MSK and convinced me to get treatmeant there. Every single person I dealt with at MSK was amazing. They made one of the scariest times in my life a lot easier to deal with. I had my thyroid removed and then I had Radioactive Iodine Therapy to remove/shrink whatever cancer was left in my lymph nodes since it had spread. I still have a tiny bit left in me, but the hope is that the radiation will do its job and get rid of the rest. If not, I am confident the fine folks at MSK will go back in and remove it. 

I have run twenty marathons, but never have I run one to raise money for charity. I've decided to run for Fred's Team this year. Any donations I receive will go to the Aubrey Fund for Pediatric Cancers. While I am fortunate enough to have the "good cancer", meaning it is slow growing and has a high survival rate, I know how terrified I was when receiving this diagnosis. During my visits to MSK I would see the pediatric patients and think if they can do this, then so can I. I would look at their parents and I thought to myself  - I will take the cancer that I have and the pain that I am going through a million times over if it would protect my children from ever having cancer. I saw how brave those children were and are and it is my wish and hope to find a cure for all pediatric cancers. 


I'm running and raising money with Fred's Team to support critical cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). I’m committed to making a difference in the lives of countless people touched by cancer.

By donating to my race, you will be giving doctors and researchers at MSK the funding they need to make groundbreaking discoveries and conduct lifesaving clinical trials. Every dollar raised is another important stride toward progress — and brings us one step closer to a world without cancer.
