THE STORY:

Everyone always wonders why my sister is 6'1" and I'm only 5 feet tall. The answer is Marfan Syndrome. Marfan Syndrome is a life-threatening genetic disorder that affects the body’s connective tissue. Because connective tissue is found throughout the body, Marfan syndrome can affect many different parts of the body including the heart, blood vessels, eyes, bones and joints (hence why my sister is so tall). Both my mom and sister have Marfan Syndrome and growing up I watched my mom go through open heart surgery and an aortic dissection, I watched my sister not be able to play sports because of strains on her heart and bullied because of her height due to her condition. Watching them go through all of this is my motivation for running the NYC marathon, because if they can deal with such a straining condition every day I can endure 26 miles for them. All of the money rasied will go to the Marfan Foundation to help to advance research for treatments for people living with Marfans to help improve their quality of life and life span. Thank you so much for your support and donation (my mom and sister and everyone effected by Marfan Syndrome thank you as well)!  <3>
