THE STORY:

I am thrilled to be running the Boston Marathon for the first time. However, I am more excited about why I have chosen to run the marathon. As a Pediatrician at Mass General Hospital since 2003, I have had the opportunity to watch brave children and adolescents fight cancer with the support of their families, friends and the amazing staff at Mass General for Children (MGHfC) Cancer Center. The number I have been given to run the Boston Marathon is a charity number. By accepting this number, I have agreed to raise at least $5,000 for the MGHfC Cancer Center. The funds I raise will ensure that our cancer patients have child life specialists to help them cope with their illnesses and the challenges they face, that robust support programs are available, like art and music therapy for our patients and support programs for parents, teens and siblings and that cancer research continues at MGHfC.

When I contemplate the 26.2 mile run I will make on 20-Apr-15, I am intimidated. But each day I push myself closer to realizing this goal. The challenge that lies ahead for me pales in comparison to the challenge that a child or adolescent faces in their battle with cancer, the heartache of a parent watching their child undergoing challenging treatment regimens, and the toll on a family when a diagnosis of cancer is made in their child or sibling.

Plesae join me in this challenge by giving to support MGHfC Cancer Center.
