BENEFITING: MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL
ORGANIZER: MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
Since my nephew was born in 2006, someone in our family has trained and run the Boston Marathon in honor of Liam, a miracle survivor of a (thankfully) rare but mortal soft tissue cancer, embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma. Liam was saved through the efforts of a consortium of research hospitals and agencies, but the bulk of his care came from Mass General Hospital’s Pediatric Oncology Unit. Our family tries to show our enormous gratitude through fundraising efforts and having someone running as part of their Boston Marathon team. We hope our fundraising will help MGH’s pediatric cancer team address the needs of other children like Liam.
Won’t you please consider making a donation to our cause this year and help me meet my fundraising goals? I am training in earnest for the marathon and hoping to finish in a reasonable time. I’ve never run 26.2 miles before, but my beautiful goddaughter Meghan never had a baby with cancer before Liam. Giving up was never an option for them, and their inspiration will help me along my way. So will your help!.
