BENEFITING: MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL
ORGANIZER: MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL
EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
When I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in 2003 it was a shock. But almost more shocking was the news that my type of cancer usually occurs in children. When my cancer recurred last year, the pathologist at City of Hope consulted with a renowned specialist in ovarian tumor pathology at Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Young, to diagnose the rare type of cancer that I have: Sertoli-Leydig Cell Tumor, which affects children, under the age of 25.
I have decided to combine these two - MGH and fighting pediatric cancer - by running the Boston Marathon as part of the Mass General Marathon Team! MGH is on the cutting edge of medical research, a world-renowned hospital that was recently voted the #1 hospital in the nation.
I hope you will consider joining me in the fight against pediatric cancer through your financial support. Together we can make a difference in the lives of children.
Let's foster HOPE in our world!
