THE STORY:

I first got involved with Massachusetts Eye and Ear when my brother in law, Michael, was being treated for Ocular Melanoma more than a decade ago. Ocular Melanoma is a particularly nasty cancer that is fortunately relatively rare--but that means that there are fewer research dollars being put toward fighting it. My wife and I helped provide hospice care to Michael in his final days. He died in our living room.

Two years ago I ran the Boston Marathon as part of Team Eye and Ear in honor of Michael, raising $9K. Last year, I happened to be at the finish line of the Marathon to watch my own brother, who ran. Fortunately, he is fast and we were a few blocks away went the bombs went off.

But having been that lucky, I felt the need to find a way to give back. So this year I am once again running the Marathon as part of Team Eye and Ear, which was one of eight hospitals who treated victims of the bombings.

This year I am dedicating my run to Scott Gaulin, who is bravely battling Ocular Melanoma today. He is a father of three who has maintained a tremendously positive outlook throughout his ordeal, which I admire greatly.

Please consider targeting your donation toward research that fights Ocular Melanoma. Thank you for your support.
