Dear Family, Friends and Colleagues,
For the third year, I have decided to take on the challenge of running the Boston Marathon. This year, I qualified to run the 116th Boston Marathon along with Massachusetts General Hospital to support care for children with cancer and to support research into new treatments and cures. Again this year it is with sincere appreciation, that I ask you to team up with me to support The Mass General Marathon Team.
Since 1998, with the partnership of John Hancock Financial, the Mass General Marathon Team has raised over $6.7 million to support the pediatric hematology-oncology program at MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC). Funds raised are directed to cancer care and research initiatives that enhance the quality of life for the hospital’s youngest cancer patients.
Please join me to help raise the vital funds needed in order to support ongoing clinical research, quality care and ongoing education that will work to benefit the patients at Mass General, and those elsewhere who live day in and out with the disease. Not only will the research, care and education help those living with the disease lead better qualities of life, it will also help researchers eventually find a cure.
Together, I truly believe that we can make a difference in the lives of kids with cancer. Thank you for supporting my goals by making a gift in support of me today.
My sincere thanks,
Learn more about the pediatric hematology-oncology program at MGHfC at the MassGeneral Hospital for Children web site.
