ORGANIZER: Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary
EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016
I am running my FIRST marathon in 2016! Even better- I'm running it for a GREAT cause!
My mom came to Mass Eye and Ear as a patient after many years of worsening hearing loss. This was causing her great distress, and affecting her quality of life.
From day 1, the entire staff and clinical providers made her feel 110% comfortable. Not only was everyone friendly and professional, but extremely qualified! Her surgery went off without a hitch, and she is thrilled with the improvement in her hearing!
As a health care professional myself, I know that the two most important pieces to successful treatment are quality of care and the patient/provider relationship. I could not have been more happy that my mom felt safe with the excellent providers at Mass Eye and Ear! Our whole family is thrilled that her hearing is restored!
Thank you for visiting my page, and reading my story as to why I'm running for Team Eye and Ear in 2016. Let's help MEEI bring their high level of care to even more patients who need it! I would greatly appreciate any donation you could provide!
My goal is $11,000 - you could help me reach that goal, and ultimately help future patients be able to hear and see the world around them!
I'll keep you updated on my progress throughout this journey, and thank you again for your support!
