THE STORY:

At the age of 3, I was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a type of childhood cancer, and treated at Massachusetts General Hospital. Thankfully, due to early detection and the MGH doctors and nurses, I was cured after a few surgeries. This year, I am incredibly excited to join the Mass General Marathon Team, Fighting Kids' Cancer...One Step at a Time to run the 119th Boston Marathon on April 20th. The opportunity to run 26.2 miles and raise money for the hospital that saved my life is truly an honor.

Childhood cancer is a cause that is so near to my heart. When I hear stories or meet children and their families affected by this horrible disease, I feel a sense of survivor's guilt. Why was I so lucky to have been cured by a few surgeries while others endure so much pain for so many years? I know that life is precious and can change in a moment. I feel blessed to have my health and be strong enough to train for a marathon this winter. 

The funds raised by myself and my teammates will go directly to the Mass General Hospital for Children Cancer Center. Among other things, the funds will help support clinical and laboratory research, supportive care programs, art and music therapy, support groups, and child life specialists who help patients cope with illness and treatment. 

Thank you so much for visiting my page, reading this and for your support. Please consider supporting this very special cause by contributing to my fundraising efforts. The kids inspire us to run 26.2 miles; we need to inspire them in return, so they can continue to fight this disease. 

I hope to see you along the course on Marathon Monday! We Run Together...Boston Strong!
