THE STORY:

My husband Tom, was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 13 and was treated at the Joslin Diabetes Center at this time. I am honored to run the Boston Marathon in support of Joslin and the great work they are doing to treat, prevent and cure diabetes.  Many thanks for supporting me and my cause.

I am also very excited to be running in Boston, where my Father-in-law, Pat Piscitelli, is from. This one's for you Pat!
