THE STORY:

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page!

I'm excited to be running the Boston Marathon 2017 as part of the the MGH pediatric oncology team! I've been running since high school and have run the Chicago Marathon twice.  For years, it's been a goal of mine to run the prestigious Boston Marathon. I could not think of a better way to share my love for running than by being part of this amazing charity team. 

As a nurse at MGH, I see the devastating effects that cancer has on patients and families on a daily basis.  In 2008, it hit a little closer to home when my brother in law was diagnosed with a brain tumor and was treated by the pediatric cancer team at MGH. Thanks to ongoing research and fundraisers like this one, he was able to beat cancer and make a full recovery! 

Now,  I'm honored to be raising money for these brave young patients fighting this disease. Please consider donating to this great cause to help further pediatric cancer care and research. 

 

Thank you!

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.
