THE STORY:

I am honored to run in the 2016 Boston Marathon, In support of Massachusetts Eye and Ear. 

 

Why?

In January of last year I was stricken with a virus that attacked my inner ear. I was unable to balance, had double vision and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. To compond these symptoms , numerous doctors misdiagnosed my condition. 

I credit Mass Eye and Ear Vestibular Center for getting me the support and diagnosis. I continue to battle with my disorder on a daily basis. I consider myself lucky as millions of people battle with many more difficult Vestibular Disorders.

The numbers are staggering.

"One recent large epidemiological study estimates that as many as 35% of adults aged 40 years or older in the United States—approximately 69 million Americans—have experienced some form of vestibular dysfunction."

I hope you will help support me and the team at Mass Eye and Ear. I will be working hard in the next couple of months to raise awarness and support for the hard work they do and need your support.
