As many of you know, I was diagnosed with Meniere’s Disease about five years ago. A rare, but extremely debilitating condition plagued by intense bouts of vertigo and hearing loss. I was confused, scared, and horribly sick. Afraid that I was going to lose my job because I was constantly dizzy and terrified that doctor after doctor, no one could seem to figure out what was wrong with me. That was until I went to Mass Eye and Ear and was properly diagnosed and treated. I am beyond grateful for their incredible care team and the quality of life they have given back to me. Now, I would like to give back to them. I am so excited to announce that I will be running the 2020 Boston Marathon with Team Eye and Ear. Please join me in supporting their mission to find cures for blindness, deafness and diseases of the head and neck. My goal is to raise $10,000 and I would be so thankful for your donations and support.
As a runner, the Boston Marathon has been a life-long dream for me. To be able to run the race in support of a charity that I am so passionate about and that has done so much for me, truly means the world.
