Please support me in my lifelong dream of running the Boston Marathon!
In 2013, I lost almost all vision in my right eye for about a year. Mass Eye and Ear gave me answers when they were finally able to identify the cause. At one memorable appointment, I was told my vision could slowly return… but may never recover… leaving me pretty devastated and scared.
This year, I am thankful to feel healthy enough to run with 50 others as part of Team Eye and Ear to raise money for the advancing research of the Neurology Department. I feel extremely fortunate to have had access to my amazing Neuro-Ophthalmologist. Today, my vision has recovered to about 85%. Sadly, my tennis game is still terrible. :)
Thank you so much for visiting my page and for all the support of my friends and family. Hope to see you ALL along the trail on race day! #kedrunsboston
