I've joined the Miles for Miracles team because I believe so strongly in all the amazing things Boston Children's Hospital does for kids:
- The hospital's patient care programs are unusually sensitive to what sick and injured children and their families really need.
- Researchers regularly make amazing discoveries that change children's lives.
- Boston Children's welcomes kids whose families can't afford health care--more than any other hospital in Massachusetts.
- Community programs makes a point of reaching out to help low-income and at-risk kids.
And the hospital doesn't just stop there. Boston Children's really understands the importance of training the next generation of top pediatricians and nurses, so they can continue to provide the best, most innovative care possible to kids.
The patient I will be running for is Kylie Patten. Kylie is eight years old and was diagnosed with a brain tumor in March of 2021. In May 2021, after a grueling 7-hour surgery, the tumor was successfully removed by the amazing team at Boston Children Hospital. Kylie was recently released from the hospital and is recovering at home with her family. Although some challenges may lie ahead for Kylie, she’s ready to tackle them head on. Kylie is a strong girl with a passion for life.
This will be my first ever marathon but I am excited to be doing it and raising money for such a great cause!
