THE STORY:

THE STORY:

Probably a lot, but not all, of you out there reading this know that my father died when I was a young child, but you may not know what happened. My dad was diagnosed with leukemia and passed away shortly after receving one of the early bone marrow transplants on December 27th, 1992, when I was eight years old. Obviously it was a sad situation and a tough time, but when I think back on it, most of what I remember is about how many people came and helped us - my mom's friends and family, my school, and honestly, the nurses and doctors at the hospitals where he was being treated. People were so nice and a lot went out of their way to make my brother and I comfortable, even though we were very young, and I've always thought that was just amazing.

My dad was pretty awesome (I'm probably biased), and I've always wanted to do some giant thing to raise a ton of money in his memory. This year it's been 21 years since he died and it seemed like the time, so I am going to be running the 2014 Boston Marathon - my first marathon! - for him. I like to think that he is somewhere finding this entire process slightly hysterical - I feel as though he would rather have had a Heineken and watched me a run a marathon than run one himself! (Realistically, he would have fit right in along the course, right?) I feel doubly lucky to get to run the Boston Marathon THIS year, after everything that happened last April on my very favorite day in my very favorite city. I am overwhelmingly excited to see what happens this year, when Boston takes back Marathon Monday, and I cannot wait to be a part of it.

I am running to raise money for the Annual Fund at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, which is focused on providing compassionate patient care. This is a fund that would help train doctors and nurses like the ones who treated my dad and worked with our family, and also goes toward innovative research, operating costs, career development, expanding clinical spaces, and academic and training programs. 

I humbly ask for your support in this effort, because it will definitely be an effort!  I first ask you for your moral support, as I'm pretty sure that Chris is going to get tired of hearing me talk about running once we hit February.  In addition, please consider a gift to this campaign, which can be done by clicking the “Donate” button.

Thank you all for the amazing friendship, love, and support you have shown me over many years and thank you in advance for considering a gift to this Marathon fundraising effort.  If you see me out running in the area (and you want to scare the crap out of me), feel free to honk! I look forward to keeping you posted on my adventure in the months to come. (If you want to easily follow along as I train through the long, cold Boston winter for the marathon, you can do so here: http://livelikeitssharkweek.com

Love to all!

Jane
