THE STORY:

Hi All!

Another year, another Boston! This will be Boston #7 for me and during that time, the MGH Kid's Cancer Team has raised millions of dollars to fund cancer research and treatment! I am so proud to have been a part of that effort and so grateful to all my friends and family for their donations and support.

If you've never donated before, information about MGH and the team is below. This website is secure and contributions are tax deductible. Donations may also be sent to me at P.O. Box 1038, Buffalo, New York and any checks should be made payable to Massachusetts General Hospital.

If you have donated before, you know the drill: give all you can and in return you'll receive my unending appreciation and a thank you note with my mug on it! Also, please forward this site to anyone you know who might have a sawbuck to throw around.

Thanks so much!!

Jordan

 

 

Patient-Partner Program

The MassGeneral Marathon Team is centered around the Marathon Patient-Partner Program, in which runners are paired with patients undergoing cancer treatment at MGHfC. When our runners set out on Boston’s grueling 26.2-mile course, they not only raise funds and awareness for pediatric cancer research; they inspire and bring hope to the youngest patients we serve.

Last year, 50 children undergoing treatment were paired with Mass General runners. Some runners take part to support young patients they already know and love while others bond with a courageous child they have never met through the Patient-Partner Program. At an emotional pre-race pasta party and ceremony on the night preceding the marathon, runners presented a medal of honor to their patient-partner. It symbolizes a shared personal commitment in the fight against pediatric cancer, and represents all the hope we have that our efforts at Mass General will lead to a cure for this devastating disease.

The Child-Life Program

The Child-Life Program within the Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology at MGHfC benefits every year from the funds raised by the Marathon Team. The program utilizes therapeutic play — including music and art therapy, massage and acupuncture — 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, an indication of the growing popularity of the programming, the recognition of its importance and the program’s ability to continue to expand its offerings — thanks in large part to philanthropic dollars.
