My name is Jess, and I'm one of the MGH Pediatric Chief Residents this year. I grew up just north of Boston in Swampscott, MA and spent many Patriots Day Mondays watching the Boston Marathon, wondering whether I might be able to be one of those runners one day. During my last year of medical school in 2009, I ran my first marathon, the Cincinnati Flying Pig. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. But Boston was still my ultimate goal. I just finished three years of pediatric residency at MGH for Children this past summer and have taken care of many amazing patients and their families throughout my time here. I can't imagine a better way of accomplishing my goal of running Boston than running as part of the MGH Marathon Team. I'm very excited to run in honor of the wonderful pediatric cancer patients and their families that I have been lucky enough to meet over the last few years.
