Why am I running the marathon? Because I can! I am running on behalf of children and their families who are left with the unbelievable task of facing a future with a life limiting illness. I am running to raise money for Pediatric Palliative care. What is palliative care? Palliative care is care given to to children to help improve their quality of life and to bring joy to them and their families as they fight life limiting illness.The funds raised by the members of our team will go directly to the MGHfC Palliative Care program, which provides an additional layer of support for these children and families.The palliative care team focuses on maximizing a child’s quality of life, providing relief from pain, symptoms, and stress, smoothing transitions of care, coordinating communication, and improving a family’s experience of care.
My goal is to raise 5-10 thousand dollars for this worthy cause, but I can't do it alone. I need the support of my friends, family and colleagues to make my goal! Any donation of any size is welcome.
Many of my team members are partnering with individual children in their run. I have been doing this too long to do that! I am running with all the patients I have cared for in mind, those in the past, and those still bravely fighting their batlles.
