THE STORY:

Team Super Nick Power -

In 2010, I was at a point in my life where I needed some sort of an accompishment.  I got wait-listed to a PA program and felt as though I was idling in life.  I needed to strive for something and wanted to make a difference to this world, perhaps change a life along the way.

I was honored to run the 2010 Boston Marathon as a member of the Mass General Marathon Team, Fighting Kids' Cancer....One Step at a Time and also lucky enough to run with Super "Nick Power" DeFelice as my patient partner.  Never did I think that it was my life that was about to change. I met Nick in Feb 2010, he was only 6 y/o. He was seemingly shy, but had an amazing presence with his beautiful crystal blue eyes and cute, roguish smile that could light up a room!  Over the years, he never ceased to amaze me with his hilarious sense of humor, love for life, courage and strength in and out of his MGH treatments.  He played and had a passion for baseball and hockey! Often times right after a treatment he would be on the ice or the field if his platelets were high enough.  Every time he visited me at work, he would hide in the family waiting area and I would have to find him.  I looked forward to those visits and felt so blessed that He and his Mom would take time out of their busy day to visit me. Unfortunately, Nick lost his battle to Neuroblastoma at 9 y/o on June 26, 2012 after fighting for six brave years. Nick has inspired me to run another Marathon and with generous donations and support I know we will not lose the War on Cancer!!

On April 15, 2013, I will run Boston's Marathon as a member of the Mass General Marathon Team, Fighting Kids' Cancer in Nick's memory and also in honor of his courageous battle.  Our team currently consists of 100 runners, who are committed to raising a minimum of $5,000+ each and many of whom run in honor of a child being treated for cancer at MGH for Children in Boston.  All of the money raised by the runners goes directly to the Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Division at MGHfC and helps support clinical and lab research in childhood cancer and other programs including parent, teen and sibling support groups, and art and music therapy for our patients during their clinic visits.

I write with the hope that you consider to donate to this great cause.
