Friends and Family:

It was almost exactly five years ago that I was diagnosed with AML, a very aggressive form of leukemia. I was very sick and at times, was very close to not making it through. But because of lots of amazing doctors, nurses, prayers, love of friends and family and my determination to not give up on my boys, Rich and family and friends - I am here today writing this note and training for the Boston Marathon!

If you told me five years ago that I would be running a marathon, I would have told you were drinking crazy juice and I would have laughed at you. Miracles can happen!

Let me tell you - running miles in this cold Boston winter is nothing compared to being away from my boys in the hospital. Please donate so that another mom like me doesn't have to be separated from her boys like I was. It's up to YOU!!! Thank you so much for donating - we are closing in on a cure and every dollar counts!!

If you donate more than $100, I will write your loved one's name on my running jersey and dedicate my runs to them - those bone chilling Boston runs! Lots of love to you all, Mary

Here...a little something from Dana Farber, who I am VERY proud to be running for!

On April 16, hundreds of Dana-Farber runners will take to the streets to participate in the 122nd 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.
