On Sunday, June 23, hundreds of teammates will come together to run the 2019 Boston Athletic Association’s (B.A.A.) 10K® road race to support Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital (BWFH ).
As a nurse at Brigham and Women's, I see firsthand every day the struggles that people face living with (and fighting) diseases such as sickle cell anemia, cystic fibrosis, crohn's disease, cancer, and more. Some of these brave people have been dealing with chronic illness for most or all of their lives. For others, it is a brand new and horrific chapter that they find themselves entering very unexpectedly.
One thing that I feel good about is knowing I work in such a great place with some of the leading research constantly coming out. Please consider making a donation to support this important research so our patients can heal and live their best lives.
