When I was born, a little old lady lived in the house next-door. Less than two years later, the Allens moved in. What I remember most about the Allens from my childhood is when Mr. Allen would plow his own driveway (and my dad plowed ours - I miss riding around in his truck while… Continue reading Thank You, Mr. and Mrs. Allen!
The Boston Marathon is in exactly 3 months! That means I have 3 months to raise $8,305! I can't believe how good I have been feeling. Saturday's run was rough because of some exterior factors out of my control, but I bounced back pretty quickly. I did not feel like death on Sunday like I… Continue reading Three Months to Go!

Choosing to leave my job at Dana-Farber was a very difficult decision. I knew it was time for a new challenge, but I second-guessed my plans throughout the entire process, wondering if I would ever find a more rewarding mission to work for. The answer was and still is, “probably not.” But I was also… Continue reading Thank You, Naomi!
