Mass. Eye and Ear has become a fairly new organization in my life. About a year ago, my lifelong friend, Ali was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and has been fighting ever since. Mass. Eye and Ear has been there every step of the way, going above and beyond, providing unwaivering support, and helping to navigae this path.
I'm running in honor of all those affected by cancers of the eye, head and neck. To be able to give back to Mass. Eye and Ear in an effort to fight cancer along side their patients, all while supporting my friend, is something that is truly invaluable to me. Running the Boston Marathon has always been a goal of mine, and I cannot think of a better opportunity to help support an organization that has helped my friend immensely, and continues to do so.
