THE STORY:

Hello friends,

My name is Tom Layman, and I'm proud to be a member of the 2015 South Shore Hospital Marathon team. I'm a South Shore kid, raised in Pembroke, and there isn't another charity I would want to run for as we all get together to raise money for the Cancer Centers at SSH.

Cancer is a disease that touches us all. Two of my grandparents battled the disease late in their lives and my father was able to find out early enough, because of some great doctors, that he has Prostate Cancer. But since it was caught early enough he's able to still enjoy his weekend golf and live a happy life.

I'm convinced people who have raised money before for charities like this helped my father with his early detection. I know that any amount raised can help the best doctors in the world enhance their ways of fighting this disease. Now I'm more than happy to help raise $8,000 for the team.

This will be my first Marathon. I've watched this race since I was a kid hanging in Wellesley at my grandmother's house. So no way would I race another Marathon before tackling Boston.

Any dollar amount you can donate will help me in my efforts and hopefully help someone down the line.

Much love,

Tommy Layman

 

SOUTH SHORE HOSPITAL INC wrote -

Thanks to the ongoing partnership with John Hancock Financial, the South Shore Hospital Boston Marathon Team has been able to raise $325,000 since inception through the Boston Marathon to support its mission of healing, caring and comforting.  As the largest hospital in the region and the 7th largest in Massachusetts, South Shore Hospital receives over 400,000 patient visits each year. Patients and their families have access to the most advanced medical care through the Hospital’s longstanding clinical affiliations with Children’s Hospital, Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women's Hospital.

The 2015 South Shore Hospital Marathon Team will support our comprehensive cancer care program.  Cancer is the leading cause of death in Massachusetts and the single biggest health threat to the 725,000 residents of the South Shore.  At South Shore Hospital, a program was developed in response to high patient demand for world-class cancer care close to home.  Each year, more than 1,000 new patients seek care at our Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center in clinical affiliation with South Shore Hospital.  Marathon funds will support the latest diagnostic technology, advanced surgical procedures, comprehensive inpatient care and access to clinical trials, new therapies and expert clinicians.
