Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is on track to conquering major forms of cancer within this decade. Home to many of the world's groundbreaking discoveries in cancer research and treatment, Dana-Farber is uniquely primed to transform this vision to a reality.
On April 3, 2014, I told my dad I was proud of him-- proud of the way he defied the statistics, proud of his unshakeable positivity during years of seemingly endless bad news, and proud of the way he chose to live and fight every single day for the remainder of his life. I told him it was okay for him to stop fighting, that I would take over his fight. The 2017 B.A.A. Half Marathon is round two of my fulfillment of that promise.

Those close to me know I refuse to say "he lost his battle with cancer". It eventually claimed his body, but not once did it rule his mind or his spirit. Although I am forced to navigate the world void of my father, I hold close the memories and lessons he gifted me with. Through him I learned to believe in myself, in others, and in our ability to beat the odds.

Today, I run for those who no longer can. I run because I can. I run because dollars lead to research, research leads to more time, and more time is priceless.

Thank you for your support today and always. May we get to a cure together.
