I was looking for a way to make my 2014 Boston marathon qualification more than a race I had no chance of winning, and found it in the Melanoma Foundation of New England. I lost my mother to melanoma when I was 15 years old, but not before she taught me that health is invaluable. It was her message that made me become a physician, and the impact her illness had on our family that led me to Medical Oncology.
25 years later we have thankfully made significant advancements in the treatment of Stage IV melanoma, but it remains incurable. Education and prevention are essential to saving lives from this disease, which all too strikes at a young age. I am honored to support the efforts of the Melanoma Foundation of New England in their mission to do so. Please consider joining me.
