THE STORY:

I'm excited (and terrified) to officially announce that I will be running the Boston Marathon for Mass General Hospital in April 2017.  To think that one year ago, I was just finishing chemotherapy and recovering from my second major surgery for breast cancer treatment at MGH...it still boggles my mind.  I received top-notch care at each and every visit, and there's no other way I would like to give back than through this sort of a fundraiser.  Plus, I get to run the Boston Marathon for a second time! :-)  I'm raising funds for the MGH Pediatric Oncology team, and I will dedicate my run to my own Oncology Team - Drs. Specht, Liao, Moy, McGrath and my primary chemo nurse, Alison.

Having to go through cancer treatment was difficult enough, but the thought of having to watch my own child go through it just breaks my heart.  This is one of a parents' worst nightmares, and I want to help make sure these families continue to receive amazing, supportive care.  Please join me in supporting the MGH Pediatric Oncology Team!

With love and HEALTH to everyone,

Alex :-)

Below is the history behind MGH/John Hancock's Boston Marathon 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 $12 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 this Marathon Team, 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 race.
