THE STORY:

I am honored that I have been given the amazing opportunity to run the 2016 Boston Marathon to support Team BIDMC, more specifically The Klarman Family NICU. I've run marthons before, but this one is one for the bucket list! So, why am I running for Team BIDMC?

I have worked at BIDMC for almost 12 years. I started working on Farr 2, a medicine floor, and 5 1/2 years ago moved to Labor and Delivery. Every shift I come to work on Labor and Delivery and help new life come into this world. Each patient I work with touches my life one way or another, and it truly is a miracle every time. It never crossed my mind working on Farr 2 that I would be faced with the scariest of situations on Labor and Delivery. Throughout my career I have witnessed codes, and brushes with death in the sickest of patients. But something makes it different when it is a tiny new life in your hands. The support we provide to families when it happens too early, or something doesn't go as planned is always a challenge, it never gets easier to watch. We are constantly being educated on how to handle these life threatening situations, but we are extremely fortunate to have the talent and experience of the staff from the NICU at our fingertips, who can rush to help when we, and these tiny lives need it. It never ceases to amaze me when the NICU staff comes to speak with a scared mother in preterm labor, or sits with a family to explain to them what lies ahead for their preterm baby in the NICU. I am honored to say I work along side these amazing members of our team. I am extremely excited to run for the Klarman Family NICU, to support the staff that I work with each shift, and for the babies that we work tirelessly for to give them the best lives possible.
