I am excited to be back on the SSH Charity team for Boston 2014. The team is an amazing group of men and women with hearts of gold and legs of steel! This year I am raising money for South Shore Hospitals Cancer Care Center and Cardiac Unit in honor of my mothers.
My mom, Sandy Emler, had a heart attack at the beginning of the year, and if it weren't for the amazing team of people (from my dad in the bed next to her, through the EMTs, the ER staff, the heart cath team, the ICU team, and the Cardiologist and his team) I might not have her today. And she is an incredible woman who has done more to give to the world around her than most.
My mother-in-law, Marilyn Bornstein, has been a warm, welcoming, kind mother-in-law -- sort of the opposite of all the mother-in-law stereotypes, the 'anti-mother-in-law'. She is struggling valiantly with pancreatic cancer.
So each one of the dollars raised, each mile in training will celebrate life -- the lives of both my Moms. Since Boston 2014 will be a real celebration of life for so many people, I can't think of two more vibrant women to honor.
