THE STORY:

This will be the tenth year that members and friends of the Boston Fire Department will be running to raise money and awareness for the Kenney Quinn Ford Brain Tumor Research Foundation. This foundation was started by members of the BFD years ago after three individuals from the BFD family were diagnosed with brain tumors.
In 2005, Captain John Kenny of the Boston Fire Department was diagnosed with a brain tumor. During the same week, Tommy Quinn (age 6 at the time) the son of a member of John’s group in the firehouse was also diagnosed with a brain tumor. Shortly thereafter, Ann Marie Ford, the wife of Boston Firefighter Bobby Ford, was also diagnosed with a brain tumor. Since that time, all three individuals, John Kenney, Ann Marie Ford, and most recently Tommy Quinn at the age of 14, have lost their difficult battles.

There is currently no cure for brain tumors. Thanks to past donations from Kenney Quinn Ford, researchers have discovered ways to administer Chemotherapy in pill form. This is a huge advancement for those undergoing cancer treatment. Your donation helps fund better treatment and directly changes lives.

I hope that you will help support me running the marathon and consider donating to these incredibly worthwhile causes. Thank you for your support!
