THE STORY:

I am so excited to have been chosen to be a part of the Mass General Hospital Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Boston Marathon Team for 2015! As a member of this team, I am raising money to support pediatric cancer research and other patient care programs at the Children's Cancer Center at Mass General Hospital.

I am running in honor of my dear Ma and Pa who battled cancer as a team and WON!

I can't wait to get started- well to tell the truth I can wait to get started but won't! With the help of team coaches, nutritionists, team members and NOT channeling my inner Basset Hound, the training is now in full swing. With your help, the fundraising will be in full swing too!

Please consider giving to this program and help me to achieve my fundraising goal! Thank you so much in advance for your generosity.

 

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!
