A Great Cause

My friends Katie and Betsy are running the Boston Marathon in support of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.  I am in awe of anyone who is willing and able to run for 26.2 miles, and I am impressed by individuals who do it in order to raise money to combat cancer.  Katie and Betsy are marathon veterans and have chosen to defeat both the marathon and cancer with one great punch.  Katie will be keeping a blog as she gets ready for the race so that we can learn what it takes to prepare for a marathon.

I have seen the effects of cancer on family and friends, and know the impact it can have on the individual and their loved ones.  There is still much that needs to be learned about this terrible condition.  Cancer research is something that I believe to be vital, and I encourage everyone to take the time to check out what Dana-Farber does and consider making a donation to either Betsy or Katie.
