In 2022, when my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, a family friend recommended Ellie Fund.  Ellie Fund stepped in and helped to ease the burden of this diagnosis for both my mom and our family.  I am looking to pay this generosity forward so Ellie Fund can continue to help patients like my mom.”

I am honored to run my 11th consecutive Boston Marathon in 2024 for TEAM ELLIE! As a breast oncologist at the Mass General Cancer Center, I am truly grateful to the Ellie Fund for the incredible support that my own patients have received as they undergo treatment for breast cancer.  This year, I am THRILLED that my dear patient Nicole Flood will be running her very FIRST Boston Marathon for Team Ellie!  This is an incredible accomplishment for Nicole, and I am so happy for her.  [ I run Boston each year to celebrate LIFE; since in the words of American marathoner Amby Burfoot: “Every mile out there is a gift and every finish line is a gift.”]  ”

My goal is to experience this prestigious race while fundraising for Ellie Fund.  As a non-profit/CSR professional, fundraising is something I do as an executive professional.  I am dedicated and determined to over deliver to support this great organization

I am running for both the Ellie Fund and in memory of my mom who passed away in 2012, at the young age of 44 after a long battle with breast cancer.  The Ellie Fund helped my mom, and our family, during this difficult time.  I was only 12 years old when my mom passed and I would like to give back to the Ellie Fund – hoping to raise more than $15,000 while also devoting this run to my mom, who I miss so very much

When I received my breast cancer diagnosis in December 2019, I was seven months pregnant.  Ellie Fund helped our family with child care assistance and grocery gift cards.  I ran the Falmouth Road Race in 2021 and my husband and I both ran in 2022 to give back to Ellie Fund.  Now I want to raise even more money for Ellie Fund to say ‘thank you’!

Both my mother and sister were diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago.  I dropped everything to become their care giver and became determined to raising awareness and funding for breast cancer patients.  I am very happy to report that both my mom and sister are now breast cancer survivors.  The Ellie Fund is very near and dear to my heart by supporting men & women in breast cancer treatment.  It is an honor to run and fundraise for Ellie Fund
