Last year I loved competing and finishing the Boston Marathon, despite the record temperatures. That's because of a special person. I was honored to run for a beautiful and brave young girl who was fighting a terrible disease. Olivia, who will be five in June, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2010. She fought a great fight and she served as a tremendous motivation when the Marathon got tough. This year, I am so happy to say I am running for Olivia again. But with one difference; Olivia has been cancer-free since October. That will only enhance the inspiration, knowing how important it is for us to all keep fighting for these young patients and raising money to support special places like Mass General Hospital for Children Cancer Center.
