On July 9, 2013 one of the toughest people we knew Vallessa M. Navarro lost her battle to Lupus. Although she may have lost the battle, her tenacity and will to soldier on was inspirational. On June 24th in honor of our friend and fallen soldier our team Sasa' s Soldiers, will continue her fight as she watches over us and we'll be running the B.A.A 10k for the Lupus Fund at Brigham and Women's Hospital. Please consider donating to our team and help us soldier on and fight Lupus.
BWH and BWFH care for patients who come from across New England, throughout the United States, and 120 countries around the world. Every day, our clinicians, researchers, and caregivers work to find new ways to predict, prevent, and treat the most challenging diseases of our time while delivering world-class care with a profoundly human touch. Our B.A.A. 10K team is proud to run in support of our mission and help fuel quality patient care, innovative training, and life-changing discoveries that will benefit patients here in Boston and around the world.
