Dana Farber Marathon Challenge Team
One of our PAs, Christopher Shields, and his wife, Kelly, are running the Boston Marathon in 2017, having been selected as members of the Dana Farber Marathon Challenge Team. They will be running in memory of their friend Chrissy Fields Cedrone (Kelly’s sister-in-law) who was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic breast cancer in 2014 and passed away on January 28th of this year. Chrissy and Chris fought the battle against cancer like many of us and our families know all too well. On April 17, Chris and Kelly and hundreds of Dana-Farber runners will take to the streets to participate in the 121st Boston Marathon®. The DFMC team runs and raises funds with thousands of special people in mind. From Hopkinton to Boston, they carry thoughts of those people every step of the way.
We at Essex Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine would like to support Chris and Kelly. If you would like to help find a cure for cancer and wish to donate, please go to Chris’ fundraising page.
