Since 1998, with the partnership of John Hancock, the Mass General Marathon Team Fighting Kids’ Cancer, One Step at a Time has raised over $15.5 million to support the pediatric hematology-oncology program at MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC). Funds raised are directed to cancer care, research, and initiatives that enhance the quality of life for the hospital’s youngest cancer patients.
MGHfC is also focused on the quality of life of its young patients and their families through the child life program, which utilizes therapeutic play - music and art therapy to help pediatric cancer patients and their families cope emotionally and developmentally with their illnesses.
Each year more patients than ever before are referred to us because we continue to be leaders in transforming cancer care for children.
Running has always been a huge part of my life. I run for so many reasons, this April I will be running for a purpose so near and dear to my heart. I am so proud to be running for the MGH team to raise money for pediatric cancer. This charity hits so close to home being the Mother of three young little girls. Please consider donating and supporting a family in need. Thank you kindly for any donation of any amount, it is more than appreciated :)
With Love & Gratitude,
