As some of you may know, my dad was diagnosed with stage IV oropharyngeal cancer two years ago. This news was soul-crushing. He was told he was going to have to go through two major surgeries as well as 8 weeks of chemo and radiation. My dad and I are very close, and his health and well being are the two of the most important things to me, so I made it my mission to help him kick cancer to the curb. But watching him go through treatment was one of the most terrifying and humbling experiences of my life. Even though he went through daily radiation treatments and tri-weekly chemo sessions, he pushed through and was deemed cancer free two years ago and has been ever since. Throughout that trying time, I was shown the power of teamwork and love from both the doctors and nurses at Dana Farber as well as the actions taken by my neighbors and friends. I was so inspired by these amazing people, that I made it my mission to run the Boston Marathon for my dad and Dana Farber when I turned 20 years old. That dream has finally become a reality, and I'm now running Boston this year, and I'm doing it in honor of my dad's fight against cancer. I want to make sure that in the future nobody has to experience the the pain my dad went through. We're going to find a cure, and I, and so many other amazing runners, are making it our goal to beat cancer and find a cure.
On April 17, hundreds of Dana-Farber runners will take to the streets to participate in the 121st Boston Marathon®. The DFMC team runs and raises funds with thousands of special people in mind. From Hopkinton to Boston, we carry thoughts of those people every step of the way.

Thank you for your support! Together, we're headed toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer.
