I'm honored to be running the 2015 Boston Marathon in memory of my mother-in-law. Sue was under the care of BIDMC from an initial diagnosis of breast cancer in 1999 through 2014 when we lost her to leukemia just before Thanksgiving. We are all grateful for the tireless efforts on her behalf, and for the gift of time that came as a result.
I'm so thankful that BIDMC is giving me the chance to pay it forward. By raising money for the Cancer Center you can help the next family who has a wonderful mother and grandmother deserving of everything that they offer. The way I figure it is that someone before us raised money for the Cancer Center, and we benefitted from it. So now it's our turn to send it along. Any donation you make towards my goal of raising $5000 is appreciated.
You donate the money. I'll run the race.
