Thanks so much for visiting my fundraising page!
I am honored to be running the 2015 Boston Marathon for my friend's son who successfully received treatments at the Massachusetts General Hospital for Children (MGHfC) Cancer Center. He is brave young boy who has been an inspiration to me as I train for my fifth Boston Marathon, and I'm very happy to help support the wonderful program at MGH that helps so many young children who are facing similar challenges. The funds I am helping to raise are directed to cancer care and research initiatives that enhance the quality of life for the hospital’s youngest cancer patients.
Thanks in large part to the philanthropic dollars raised by the Mass General Marathon Team...Fighting Kids’ Cancer One Step at a Time.... MGHfC is advancing cutting-edge research, increasing the number of clinical studies to improve cure rates, and providing the best treatment possible to pediatric cancer patients. MGHfC is also focused on the quality of life of its young patients and their families through the child life program, which utilizes therapeutic play - music and art therapy to help pediatric cancer patients and their families cope emotionally and developmentally with their illnesses.
Any donation amount to this very worthwhile cause is greatly appreciated, and you'll be playing an important part in the lives of some brave young children who really need our support.
Thank you so much for your consideration!
