What does it mean to be Type G?
Thank you for visiting!
I am a dermatology physician assistant who is running the 118th Boston Marathon this April to raise money and awareness for the Melanoma Foundation of New England regarding the deadliest form of skin cancer .. Melanoma.
Recently, I was speaking with a fellow provider about goals for 2014. I mentioned to him that I would be running the Boston Marathon. He said, “ you must be type A”. I told him on the contrary, I am type G.. for Giving. I am running for my patients and their families. I suggested that if more people where type G, the world may be a better place.
In honor of all of our patients and their families with melanoma, I thank you for digging deep and giving. Together we can get one mile closer to a cure for melanoma.
