THE STORY:

Thank you for coming to my donation page!! I truly appreciate your consideration and donations.  Below, you can read about the amazing things that Mass General is doing to help children fight cancer.  Your donations will benefit so many children who are fighting the battle of their lives!

I am running this marathon not only for these children, or myself, but also to honor my Dad who passed away from cancer when I was 9.  He was a wonderful person with a big heart and a great laugh, and I know he would be so proud of me taking on this endeavor, and so grateful for everyone who contributes towards my goal. I run for him and these children in hopes that they will be able to preservere and live full healthy lives.

Thank you again so very much!

Amy

MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL wrote -

Since 1998, with the partnership of John Hancock, the Mass General Marathon Team...Fighting Kids’ Cancer, One Step at a Time...has raised over $10 million to support the pediatric hematology-oncology program at MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC). Funds raised 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.

This year, more patients than ever before utilized Child-Life services, which indicates the growing popularity of the programming, the recognition of its importance, and the program’s ability to continue to expand its offerings.

We are grateful for the hard work of all of our runners and the dedication of their family and friends, as they embark on fundraising and training for the historic 26.2 mile. Mass General and Boston...Together We Finish!
