THE STORY:

Running has become my passion in life for so many reasons.  From mud runs to marathons and everything in between. I am a cancer survivor who refuses to let anything get in the way of my dreams.  Last year I was among the crowd that was stopped from finishing the marathon due to the bombing.  It was a day that was painful, scary, and one that will always be in my memory.  This year, I will be back at the starting line stronger than I ever thought I could be.  My motivation is for my late father who passed away suddenly in 2012.  Last year I ran in his honor.  This year I will fulfill my commitment to finish this race in his name.  I have always been known to push my limits to fulfill a dream, this marathon is no exception.  I am more determined than ever to cross the finish line of the 2014 Boston Marathon with pride.  I am living proof that you can overcome adversities such as cancer, death, acts of terror, and hardships.  Determination, motivation, discipline, perspective, and passion will always guide you to the finish; this has become my way of life.  I will be running for my father, myself, and everyone that has been affected by the bombings.  I am and will forever be Boston Strong.

I have come back to Team Eye & Ear to finish what I started with an amazing group of people.  It is because of Mass Eye & Ear that I was able to even get to the start line last year.  This hospital is one of the best in the country.  They helped save my hearing when I was a child, without the team of doctors I had by my side, I don't where I would be today.  Every dollar raised makes it possible for Mass Eye & Ear to excel in clinical care, research, and medical education.  That, in turn, allows them to provide the finest specialty care to every person who comes through their door and to share their knowledge in order to help patients around the world.

Please consider making a donation to support me and this fantastic hospital. 

Thank you for your support, Melanie
