"You have an aneurysm and we need to transfer you to a Boston hospital. Where do you want to go?" Those were the words from the ER doc at my local hospital when I arrived with the worst headache of my life.
MGH I said. No hesitation.
I don't remember the ambulance transport or the admittance to MGH ER. I only know that they had the skills, technology and teamwork to stabilize the bleed in my head. After 8 days in the neuro ICU I was home to continue my recovery.
That was March 2014. I watched the first Boston Marathon after the bombing at home recovering. It was incredibly emotional and inspirational. Boston had been wounded and now the spirit of our injured, our heros, rose. Boston Strong. Many had been treated at MGH Emergency Response and now ran for MGH. Strong, determined people.
When MGH invited me to join their 2015 marathon team the answer was yes, no hesitation. I've benefited from those before me, those who have given time and resources to make this a great institution. A place you can count on.
Help me raise funds for MGH Emergency Response. I'l do the training and run as best I can -- together we'll prepare MGH for the next emergency. Any amount is a good amount. Every donation counts.
