THE STORY:

Dear Friends,

As you know, I was not able to run my 25th consecutive Boston Marathon last year due to an injury. However, with your donations, my personal fundraising was at an all-time high and our MassGeneral Marathon Team "Fighting Kid's Cancer One Step at a Time" raised over one million dollars to support our childhood cancer program. So far my training is going well this year and I am excited about crossing the Finish line for the 25th time. I have also decided to give my body a rest and retire from marathon running after this year but I still plan to be the captain of our team.

Each year I dedicate my marathon run to one of my patients. Last year I ran for an adorable 4 year old girl named Annie. Annie completed an intensive year of therapy for neuroblastoma one year ago and she is thriving in kindergarten and is a super active 5 year old. This year I will be running for Harry. Harry has Down syndrome and was diagnosed with acute leukemia ten months ago. Harry is in remission and his big smile and engaging personality have won over everyone in our clinic. Harry lives in Marblehead with his parents, twin brother, and older brother and never stops playing. There is not a summer day that passes without Harry frolicking in the ocean.

I will also be allocating a portion of my fundraising this year to support the development of a pediatric cancer program in Uganda. I am very proud to be leading an MGH Global Health effort to help build a sustainable childhood cancer program in a public hospital in Mbarara that is located in southwestern Uganda near the Rwanda border. We are helping to train physicians, nurses, and a support team to care for Ugandan children suffering from cancer in an effort to improve the quality of care and increase survival rates. Unfortunately, only about 10% of children in Uganda today survive cancer compared to 85% of children in the U.S. and other developed countries. I am very optimistic that we can make a big difference in the next few years.

Thank you for your loyal support and confidence in our work. As I mentioned, this is a very special year for me as I will be running my 25th Boston marathon to raise money for cancer care and research. Each and every one of our patients and families are very grateful for your help. You can sponsor me online or make a check payable to the MassGeneral Hospital and mail it to me at:  Pedi. Hem.-Onc. - MassGeneral Hospital for Children - 55 Fruit St. - Yawkey 8B - Boston, MA  02114. Best wishes and I hope to see you at Mile 20 on April 18, 2016.

Howard
