THE STORY:

Dear Family, Friends and Colleagues,

I am so excited to announce that I have joined the Mass General Marathon Team- "Fighting Kids’ Cancer… One Step at a Time".  On April 20, 2015, I will fulfill a lifelong dream of running the Boston Marathon!  As a member of the Mass General Marathon Team, I am honored to raise money to support pediatric cancer research and patient care programs at the Children's Cancer Center at MGH.

I cannot imagine a better cause to raise money for to help to fight cancer, particularly for children with cancer.  I have been honored to be partnered up with an 18 year old patient at MGH named James who recently completed intensive chemotherapy treatment and surgery for his newly diagnosed germ cell tumor. Meeting with James and his family was a true inspiration, it gave me much more meaning to my fundraising and it is a true honor to be running the marathon in support of James and all pediatric cancer patients! It is a small way to pay for me to give back and pay tribute to their courageous battles they are fighting daily!

The funds raised by the Mass General  Marathon Team will  go directly to the Mass General Hospital for Children Cancer Center. These funds will help support clinical and laboratory research in childhood cancer, as well as supportive care programs including wellness services like art and music therapy; parent, teen and sibling support groups; and child life specialists who help patients cope with illness and treatment.

As a lymphoma nurse practitioner at MGH, I see the daily emotional struggles that patients and their families experience when faced with a diagnosis of cancer.  It is a privilege to care for these patients, and I am humbled by the courage they display as they face their illness. I am also running this race to honor the strength of my patients and their family members.

I will be training very hard throughout the winter to prepare for the marathon, but I will need your help to reach my fundraising goal of $5,000. Please help support me in raising money to support the care for kids with cancer at one of the best hospitals in the world.

Thank you for your support,

Amanda Crawford
