Thank you SO MUCH for visiting my fundraising page for the 2019 BOSTON MARATHON!!!!!
I could not be more EXCITED to run this incredible race, and I am grateful to run it for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation.
As an oncology nurse practitioner at The Program in Women's Oncology, at Women and Infants Hospital, I have the honor to be a part of the care team for women who have been diagnosed with cancer. I bear witness to the myriad of challenges that our patients face with bravery and courage. The physical and emotional demands are significant for all of our patients, and for some patients, there is an added financial burden of paying for their utilities or mortgage while out of work undergoing cancer treatment. The Joe Andruzzi Foundation provides grants to our patients undergoing active cancer treatment who are struggling to pay for their basic needs of electricity and a roof over their heads. Your donation to my fundraising efforts will directly influence the lives of the women I work with daily, as well as other men, women and children across New England. For that support, I can not thank you enough.
When I run in April, each step will be inspired by the tough as nails patients that we care for at The Program in Women's Oncology, and most especially, in honor of my sister-in-law, who is fighting a remarkably courageous battle of her own.
Bring on Heartbreak Hill, and....
