THE STORY:

Cancer is a word that nobody likes to talk about.  Unfortunately, the reality is that cancer is as unique as the person fighting it.  Now imagine that person is a child; a child who wants to go to school, play with his friends, spend time with his family, and a chance to grow up.

The Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Team at MGH is committed to help children fight the battle against cancer, one step at a time.  I am honored to be running the 2017 Boston Marathon as part of this prestigious team.  But we need your help!  

Please consider donating toward this great cause!  After all, it's for the children.  

MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL:

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.
