THE STORY:

IT'S BOSTON TIME!

For the fourth consecutive year, I'm very proud to be a member of the MGH Pediatric Oncology and Hematology Marathon Team for the Boston Marathon. Every year I commit to raising at least $5000 - and 100% of those funds goes to the charity directly (we pay our own travel to Boston and race entry fees). It's an amazing and supportive group - and it's been around long enough that some of the patients who were once treated as pediatric oncology patients at MGH are now members of the team as adults.

I run in memory of a great Boston runner: 40-time Boston Marathon finisher Martin Duffy, a dear friend who lost his life to squamous cell carcinoma when he was 70 years old - a year and a half after he had completed Boston #40 while undergoing chemotherapy, an incredible achievement and testament to his indomitable will and love of the sport of distance running. Martin was treated at MGH and enjoyed the best quality of life that he could, for as long as he had. He lived every moment to the fullest.

Please join me in honoring his memory and helping the patients and families at MGH this year by offering your support to this initiative. No amount is too small - it all adds up! Thank you for taking the time to support this amazing program.

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!
