THE STORY:

 

April 15, 2013 will be a day I never forget.  I was cheering on runners and spectators with my friends at two of the patio bars adjacent to the second bomb site last year.  We were all fortunate and escaped physical harm that day.  My friend Erin and I ran in to see what help we could provide to the victims (once a nurse always a nurse).  My memories of the sights, sounds, and emotions of Marathon Monday will forever leave an imprint on my heart.  In the picture above I am standing with Marc, a Boston Marathon Bombing Survivor.  We met on April 15.  

I am honored and committed to run with the MGH Emergency Response Marathon Team.  I run to support all those who are still recovering from their injuries, and for the innocent victims who lost their lives.  I could not think of a better way to show my Boston Strong than participate in Marathon Monday 2014.

Please join me in supporting the Boston Marathon and all it represents by donating to the MGH Emergency Response Fund.   Please come and cheer me on through the 26 mile journey.  I promise to hit the pavement hard and run my heart out.

Thank you!!!!

MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL wrote -

Thanks to the Boston Athletic Association, Massachusetts General Hospital received 40 entries into the 2014 Boston Marathon in recognition of our staff’s work following the tragic events at the 2013 marathon.

Mass General is honored to have contributed to the healing of the victims of the marathon bombings, their families and our community. We remain extremely proud of the compassion, diligence and professionalism our exceptional caregivers demonstrated.

The enormity of the marathon bombing tested their skills and resilience. The future of dozens of badly wounded patients and their traumatized families were in their hands. Moreover, this attack occurred at one of Boston’s most storied events. The caregivers themselves were shaken. Some struggled to save lives that afternoon fearing that the next patient who came through the doors might be someone they knew.

Of the 39 victims treated at Mass General, the most gravely wounded suffered from traumatic amputations, severe blood loss and third-degree burns.

In the tragedy’s wake, we began to raise funds to support the MGH Emergency Response Fund. It provides social services for victims and families of disasters, as well as emergency care, disaster relief and disaster preparedness training.
