Our daughter Kate was a competitive Team USA swimmer and several years ago, a patient in the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital CardioVascular Intensive Care Unit. I have been fund-raising to support cardiac research ever since. Today, Kate is a college sophomore in an RN degree program and in the midst of doing a student nurse summer internship in Cardiac Pediatrics. 

 I am very committed to supporting and fundraising for Dr. MacRae, a cardiologist and geneticist whose clinical interests include how research findings can be systematically implemented into clinical care. Dr. MacRae works on understanding the mechanisms of heart and vascular disease-especially cardiomyopathies. His lab has developed new models for drug discovery in these diseases including ARVC. He is Chief of Cardiovascular Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and an Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. My run this year is to continue to support Dr MacRae's research
