THE STORY:

Dear friends and family,

Another year another Boston Marathon.  I'm so excited to have joined the 2017 Mass General Marathon Team for Pediatric Hematology Oncology.  My goal is to raise $7000 to support important pediatric cancer research and enable worthwile programs for kids and their families being treated at MGH for cancer.

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.

So many of you have donated to this cause in past years for which I am so grateful.  Thanks to your donations and others over the years, 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.

With so many solicitations for donations to worthy causes, I know it can be hard to pick and choose.  I'd be grateful for any sized donation or, if this isn't the year, that's ok too.  

With best wishes to all on a New Year filled with joy, family and peace.

Love,

Phoebe
