THE STORY:

I am honored to be a part of The Massachusetts General Hospital Marathon team Fighting Kid’s Cancer while being given the opportunity to run in the greatest marathon in the world. 

The reason I am doing this and the reason you should support our team is that every day 36 children are diagnosed with cancer.  Now, in 2015, over 85% of newly diagnosed childhood cancer patients are cured.  The funds raised go directly toward improving that incredible cure rate as well as providing the support children and their families need during their treatment such as wellness services, financial support for families and counseling.

Your financial support contributes toward the incredible strides that have been made and continue to be made in saving our children from cancer.

Please be generous in supporting me and the 2015 Massachusetts General Hospital Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Team.  It makes a difference for every sick child and his/her family fighting cancer.

Thank you.

Tim Orcutt

 

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!
