                              GIVING BACK


Every time you purchase a copy of THE MARATHON by Kerry Sheeran tef/ea,

A portion of the proceeds goes directly towards the advancement of neonatal and prenatal care at Boston Children's Hospital.  


              With groundbreaking science and treatment, babies' lives are being saved before they are even born.  Families are kept together.  Funding goes directly towards:


  • The Advanced Fetal Care Center


The mission of the Advanced Fetal Care Center (AFCC) is to provide the finest diagnosis, ongoing screening and care for a mother carrying a  baby with a confirmed or suspected congenital anomaly. For these families, their center offers entry to a continuum of care and support that extends throughout childhood--from prenatal diagnosis and counseling, through treatment and long-term follow-up. On rare occasions, their team will recommend and perform intervention during fetal life. For example, they partner closely with their consultants in the Fetal Cardiology Program to correct or prevent defects of the fetal heart in utero. Their physicians, who represent all pediatric subspecialty areas, work with a wide range of babies with anomalies. Together, they have developed ground-breaking procedures in fetal medicine and surgery.


  • The Department of Pediatric Surgery


​Boston Children's Hospital has been at the forefront of child health for more than 130 years. The Department of Pediatric Surgery at Boston Children's Hospital provides general and specialized surgical services to infants, children and adolescents suffering from a wide range of congenital and acquired conditions.  They are home to several "surgical firsts".  I have personally witnessed several miracles performed at the hands of these surgeons.  They are my heroes.
