On April 15th, I am running the 123rd Boston Marathon in support of the heroic efforts of Mass Eye and Ear. They conduct ground-breaking research and provide top-notch patient care to aid countless individuals such as my father John Cannistraro, Sr. A long-time supporter and patient of Mass Eye and Ear, he has always held this institution in high regard, urging a great number of friends and family members to seek treatment there. In the fall of 2015, doctors at Mass Eye and Ear discovered he had throat cancer. Thankfully, this was caught early, and he was successfully treated with radiation. I am thrilled to report that his cancer has not returned! Please join me in supporting the on-going phenomenal clinical work and research of Mass Eye and Ear.
