I am excited and honored to be running the 2019 Boston Marathon with Mass General. It is very rewarding give back to Mass General and other families on behalf of our mother who received a bone marrow transplant after being diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer after her 50th birthday.
Funds raised are directed to cancer care, research, and initiatives that enhance the quality of life for the hospital’s youngest cancer patients. Since 1998, with the partnership of John Hancock, the Mass General Marathon Team Fighting Kids’ Cancer, One Step at a Time has raised over $14 million to support the pediatric hematology-oncology program at MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC).
Donations of any size are sincerely appreciated. Please let me know if there is someone you would like me to run for. I will be adding ribbons with their names on them to the singlet I plan to wear that day!
