EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
Another Patriot's Day, another Boston Marathon. I'm very excited to have joined the Mass General Marathon Team, Fighting Kids' Cancer...One Step at a Time and plan to run the marathon on April 15 to raise money to support pediatric cancer research and patient care programs at MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC) Cancer Center.
I'm dedicating this run to my sister-in-law, Kat, who sadly passed away on March 6 after battling glioblastoma, an aggressive brain tumor, for nearly 8 years. My marathon simply pales in comparison to the marathon she ran. She has been a true inspiration to me, and I feel incredibly lucky to have been a small part of her life.
I'm hoping you will consider making a donation to help support cancer research, but understand times are tight and you are likely hounded by many other worthy causes. Your words of support are also greatly appreciated. Many thanks. Phoebe
