THE STORY:

                                                                        January 2015

 

Dear Friends and Family

The excitement and enthusiasm are mounting as our MGH Marathon Team "Fighting Kid's Cancer ... One Step at a Time" continues training and fundraising for the 2015 Boston Marathon..  Our 2015 team includes 100 runners who are committed to raising a record amount of money for the childhood cancer program at the MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC). Our runners include parents and relatives of our patients, survivors of childhood cancer, Mass General staff, and folks from all over New England and the U.S. who are dedicated to our mission.   Since 1998, in partnership with John Hancock Financial, the MassGeneral Marathon Team has raised over $10 million dollars in support of the childhood cancer program at MGHfC.. Funds raised by our runners go directly to support clinical cancer care and research and many programs and activites that suport children and their families during the difficult period of cancer care including long-term follow-up.

As you know, each year I dedicate my marathon run to one of my patients. Last year I ran for Lorenzo who was being treated for acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Lorenzo continues to do well and he inspires all of us. He graduated from high school this past June and entered college in the fall. Despite his ongoing chemotherapy, Lorenzo is getting good grades at college and also working on evenings/weekends to help support himself. This year I am running for another one of my amazing patients. Annie is a very adorable 4 year old girl who was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer(neuroblastoma) this past year. She has endured one year of intensive therapy including a stem cell transplant and she never fails to sparkle and make us laugh.  I am in awe of her courage and energy. Annie has responded beautifully to therapy and will be waiting for my hug at  Mile 20. Helping Lorenzo, Annie, and all of our young cancer patients to live long and healthy lives is the best motivation in the world to get myself and my teammates from Hopkinton to Boston.

Thank you for your loyal support and confidence in our work. This is a very special year for me. I will be running my 25th consecutive Boston Marathon to raise money for cancer care and research. I plan to continue running until we have beat this terrible disease.  Each and every one of our patients and their families are very grateful for your help. We are making great strides toward our goal of curing all children with cancer.

You can sponsor my run online at http://www.crowdrise.com/massgeneralboston2015/fundraiser/howard    or make a check payable to the Mass. General Hospital and send it in the self-addressed stamped envelope to me.

Best wishes and I hope to see you at Mile 20 on April 20, 2015.
