THE STORY:

On February 3, 2014, my wife Katie gave birth to our third son, Rory.  As a result of an extremely rare and complicated pregnancy condition, Katie lost a life-threatening amount of blood during the birth.  Not only did her doctors and nurses help to deliver our beautiful, healthy baby boy but they worked tirelessly to save my wife’s life.

I spent the days that followed visiting my son in the NICU and my wife in the SICU.  Throughout this challenging time I had the tremendous support of family, neighbors, friends, and co-workers.  Most importantly however, I had dozens upon dozens of Beth Israel’s finest- doctors, nurses, social workers, receptionists, custodians- all going out of their way to make sure our family received the support necessary to make it through such a massive challenge.

As a result of the phenomenal care that Katie and Rory received at Beth Israel, I am overjoyed to share that both are now living their lives to the fullest.  The professionalism, compassion, patience, and world-class skill exhibited by all those that helped us along the way cannot be understated. 

Making the decision to run the 2015 Boston Marathon was the best way I could think of to say “thank you” to all of the members of the Beth Israel family that worked relentlessly to help my family.  My hope is that the money I am able to raise over the next six months will be used to help another family through similarly difficult circumstances.  Even the smallest financial donation can make a huge difference for patients and families in need.

Cheers and touch all!

Matt
