THE STORY:

In April I will be running the 2017 Boston Marathon on the MGH Pediatric Oncology team to raise money for children fighting cancer. Many of you know this is very near and dear to me because my 5 year old son Caden is a patient receiving treatment for cancer at MGH here in Boston. I'm excited and honored to be a selected member of this team for the 3rd year in a row!

Training for a marathon is hard work and can test all of your limits, but I'm reminded every day that it's nothing compared to fighting for your life. Caden was diagnosed with leukemia when he was 2 1/2 and has been bravely fighting every day since. His little body has been through more than most of us will ever endure, but he's never let it get him down. He's always laughing, smiling or just being silly. We are so thankful for his amazing team of caretakers at MGH who have become part of our family.

Please consider a donation to help find a cure for Caden and all the other children fighting so hard to beat this ugly disease as well as support them while they continue their courageous battles.

Forever grateful of your continued support!

With love, Tarrah

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.
