THE STORY:

I am beyond excited (and more than a little afraid!) to announce that I will be running the 2017 Boston Marathon on April 17th!  The best part of this endeavor is that I will be raising funds for Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center ("BIDMC").

When I was a Senior at Weston High School, I was in a serious car accident.  Immaturity, speed and a convertible mustang were not a good mix for me. As a result of being thrown from the car, I broke several vertebrae in my neck and was taken to BIDMC.  When I first got to BIDMC, I could not move or feel anything from the chest down. I will never forgot the care I received.  I was placed in a halo brace (don't google it, it isn't pretty) and had to learn to walk again - just like in the movies.  Luckily, after months of physical therapy, a stint at a rehabilitation center, unwaivering support from family and friends, and eventual surgery to fuse vertebrae together, I was able walk again and regain most sensation.  

I am truly lucky. Now more than 25 years later, I live a full, active life with my husband and our 4 kids. Only traces of my injury remain, but my memories of my time at BIDMC are vivid and it seems only right to give back to the place that gave me so much.

Please consider donating if you can.  Any amount is appreciated! I truly appreciate the support!

Thank You!!

Below is some information about BIDMC's annual fund, where the funds I hope to raise will go...

Annual Fund

BIDMC depends on the Annual Fund to fulfill its mission of providing compassionate patient care.

This fund raises unrestricted dollars that can be used immediately for a wide range of needs. They provide a reliable, steady source of funding for the programs that need it most:

Promising research projects, such as cancer genetics investigations

Annual operating costs, such as funding for social worker positions

Career development opportunities for staff, such as continuing education scholarships for nurses

Expansion of clinical spaces, like minimally invasive surgery suites

Academic and teaching programs, such as fellowships for the next generation of physicians in growing service lines
