I appreciate your taking the time to read about this important cause.
As you may or may not know, I have been running the Boston Marathon in support of children’s cures for a couple of years now. This year I have joined the MassGeneral Marathon Team, Fighting Kid’s Cancer One Step at a Time because this cancer thing just got very personal! Unfortunately, my daughter Andrea was diagnosed with Leukemia (AML) this past September and is currently being treated at MGH. This will be my 5th Boston Marathon but certainly the most memorable.
As you can well imagine, going thru something like this is not easy for a 16 year girl (and her family) but MGH’s care both at the clinic and on Ellison 18 have been nothing short of amazing. Andrea is doing very well thanks to the doctors, nurses and support programs at MassGeneral Hospital for Children. We consider them family.
Now, see the giant orange DONATE button over there on the right…..please click it to help me raise funds in support of pediatric hematology-oncology for MassGeneral Hospital for Children.
Thank you very much.
