Welcome to My Fred's Team Page
Name: Garrett Nash
I'm running in the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon with Fred's Team to raise funds for crucial cancer research, and I'm asking you to help me by donating to my run.
I am inspired to go to work every day by my patients. Each morning these patients wake up to undergo treatment for colorectal cancer, appendix cancer, mesothelioma and other rare malignancies or face life with the specter of recurrence not far from their minds. I hope that my oncology training and experience can make a positive impact in their lives. But I have no illusions that there is much that we do not know about the biology and optimal treatment of cancer. That is why half of my time is spent conducting research. Knowing the deep need for cancer research funding, I have completed seven races for Fred’s Team — NYC Half Marathons each year from 2010 through 2013 and NYC Marathons in 2010, 2011, and 2013 — and in so doing have raised almost $40,000 to support cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Your dontation will be used to support our efforts to better understand and treat metastatic cancer to the peritoneum. Unfortunately, this type of cancer spread has been very challenging to control. Nevertheless, with your donation we have the opportunity to make a major impact in this group of diseases, including appendix and colorectal cancer.
Cancer is not just part of my professional life. My own mother, in addition to other family members and friends, has been touch by cancer. Running a marathon seems like a small effort compared to what I see them and my patients go through. But running in the NYC marathon has been a lifetime highlight for me and I am looking forward to doing it again.
