I am thrilled to announce that I have been selected to run the 2019 Boston Marathon for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation! As many of you may know, I have the privilege of working with women with cancer. I get to be a part of their village as they navigate the journey through treatment, striving for a cure, many learning to live with cancer. We all have family and friends who have faced a cancer diagnosis.
We are all too aware of the physical and emotional challenges ahead. However, many do not realize the financial burden that many families endure. The Joe Andruzzi Foundation has helped countless families make that burden a little lighter. I have seen first hand, the impact JAF has on our patients at Women and Infants Hospital Oncology Program, as well as families all over New England. Over the next 6 months, my goal is to raise $10,000 for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation. (Oh yeah... and train to run 26.2 miles, up "heartbreak hill" to the finish line!) With your help, I know that we can surpass this goal, to provide families going through cancer treatment a little help, hope, and a reason to smile :-) Join me.
