BENEFITING: Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary
ORGANIZER: Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
We are running the 2017 Boston Marathon to support the heroic efforts of Mass Eye and Ear, which conducts ground-breaking research and treatments to countless individuals, including our father, John C. Cannistraro, Sr. A longtime supporter and patient of Mass Eye and Ear, he has always held this institution in high regard, urging a great many friends and family members to seek treatment there. In the fall of 2015, doctors at Mass Eye and Ear discovered that he had throat cancer. Thankfully, this was caught early, and he was successfully treated with radiation. We are thrilled to report that his cancer has not returned. Please join us in supporting the on-going phenomenal clinical work and research of Mass Eye and Ear.
Michael is returning to Team Eye and Ear for his third Boston Marathon, while Paul is excited to join the team for his first time running Boston! Michael will be training mostly in the foothills of Los Angeles, as Paul braves the cold New England winter. We will be sure keep you updated with our training progress!
