THE STORY:

On April 20, 2015, I will be running the Boston Marathon as part of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Team to raise money for the Cancer Center Fund.

I first became connected to BIDMC when I started dating my now-husband, Jason, who had just begun his emergency medicine residency at BIDMC at the time.  Between driving him to and from his ER shifts at all hours of the day and night, attending residency retreats together, and socializing with the other residents, I came to feel like a part of the BIDMC community.  I had no idea I would soon become a patient there myself.

Jason and I got engaged during the summer of 2013, and two weeks later, at age 24, I found out I had cancer - a sarcoma (tumor) in my arm.  Definitely not something I was expecting to have to tackle, when all I wanted to do was plan my wedding and run my start-up (Her Campus).  Those first few weeks after the diagnosis were filled with so much anxiety and uncertainty as we figured out a course of action.

Thanks to the incredible doctors and care at BIDMC, I was lucky to receive excellent treatment that enabled me to be declared cancer-free a few months later.  I got to spend that next year tackling the projects and challenges I wanted to tackle, rather than battling cancer.  I am thrilled to say I have now been cancer-free for over a year thanks to the expert care I received at BIDMC.

I am honored to now take on the challenge of running 26.2 miles to support BIDMC's Cancer Center.  Even though I know I have some grueling weeks of long runs (and cold temperatures) ahead of me, I feel so grateful to have my health and to have the ability and opportunity to run this race supporting the Cancer Center in my lifelong home of Boston.

Thank you so much in advance for your support.  Every single donation will make a difference to me and will go to fund incredibly important work.

Love,

Stephanie
