THE STORY:

I am excited and honored to be running my 4th Boston Marathon for the Mass General Pediatric Cancer Team!

This will be a special year because my younger sister, Jaymi will be running her first Boston Marathon.  Jaymi was taken to MGH after she was injured in the 2013 marathon bombings. The care and support my family received on April 15th and continues to receive today is incredible. As you can imagine, it is difficult to put into words our appreciation for the MGH doctors and nurses that have helped Jaymi along the way.

The support we experienced is a reflection of how they take care of all of their patients, which is why I could not be more honored to run for Mass General Hospital for Children. I am raising funds and running for the hospital’s pediatric hematology-oncology program, their youngest cancer patients. The money raised will go to research, treatment, and activities for these children.

I'm counting down the days until I can see my sister cross the finish line on April 17!

Thank you for your support. 

MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL wrote -

Since 1998, with the partnership of John Hancock, the Mass General Marathon Team Fighting Kids’ Cancer, One Step at a Time has raised over $12 million to support the pediatric hematology-oncology program at MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC). Funds raised are directed to cancer care and research initiatives that enhance the quality of life for the hospital’s youngest cancer patients.

Thanks in large part to the philanthropic dollars raised by this Marathon Team, MGHfC is advancing cutting-edge research, increasing the number of clinical studies to improve cure rates, and providing the best treatment possible to pediatric cancer patients. MGHfC is also focused on the quality of life of its young patients and their families through the child life program, which utilizes therapeutic play - music and art therapy to help pediatric cancer patients and their families cope emotionally and developmentally with their illnesses.

This year, more patients than ever before utilized Child-Life services, which indicates the growing popularity of the programming, the recognition of its importance, and the program’s ability to continue to expand its offerings.

We are grateful for the hard work of all of our runners and the dedication of their family and friends, as they embark on fundraising and training for the historic 26.2 mile race.
