THE STORY:

            I am thrilled to be running the 2017 Boston Marathon in support of Mass General Hospital and in honor of my father Bill Foley, who received world class care there in 2015.  In August of 2015 my very active 61 year old father was admitted to Mass General after having bouts of chest pain for over a week and failing a stress test. Soon after his arrival we found out that Bill had several clogged valves and would need open heart surgery.  This was very alarming to me and my family.   To add to our confusion, on this same morning Bill’s first grandchild “Tucker” was born whom he was not able to see until after the surgery, almost two weeks later.  To cope with his nerves and all this terrible news he had just received, he made sure to look at the bright side and find a positive in the situation.  He told everyone “I am in a great place; I just read in the Sunday Globe that Mass General was named the best hospital in the nation.”  This quote stuck in my mind throughout the entire ordeal as I witnessed why Mass General was the best hospital in the Nation.

                I am ecstatic to say that the surgery was very successful.  As a family we are very fortunate to live in Boston and that my father was able to receive world class care at Mass General Hospital.  Today my father is very fit and healthy and we are so blessed to have him in our lives.  I cannot think of a better way to give back to MGH than to combine my lifelong dream of running the Boston Marathon, with raising funds for The Mass General Emergency Response Team.  Through your donation, many other patients will benefit from the expertise, unbelievable staff, and technology at MGH.  Please consider donating to this amazing team.

 

 

MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL wrote -

Following the tragedy of the 2013 marathon bombings, Mass General was fortunate to receive 40 guaranteed entries from the Boston Athletic Association to create an Emergency Response Marathon Team.  For the third year, thanks to John Hancock, Mass General will have 40 spots for runners on the Emergency Response Marathon Team. The funds raised provide critical support for emergency care, disaster relief and disaster preparedness teaching and training at Mass General, efforts that benefit victims worldwide.

Team runners raise money to ensure that Mass General is ready for the next disaster – man-made or natural. Marathon funds support the training and resources needed to develop a carefully, integrated response that spans multiple departments throughout the hospital. “There’s no room for error,” says David Brown, MD, chief of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Mass General. “Our performance must be flawless. As in football, if one player of the 11 on the field doesn’t do the job, the play fails.”

At Mass General, we take emergency planning very seriously. Preparing for the next disaster takes much training and practice. And donors are critical to our success. Time spent training is not covered by insurance and often takes place outside work hours. Money raised by the Mass General Emergency Response team allows Mass General to ready at a moment’s notice.
