Metastatic Breast Cancer Project www.mbcproject.org The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard is a nonprofit academic research institution whose mission is to dramatically accelerate the understanding and treatment of disease, and where patient-driven research is conducted in conjunction with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Patients give consent to use their saliva, blood, and tissue samples to speed advances in treatment. More than 1,800 patients are participating from every state in the country. Media coverage of Carol's courageous journey is uplifting for any- one battling cancer. Runner's World magazine, the "Jimmy Fund Blog" of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, The Boston Globe, Boston magazine, CBS Boston WBZ Channel 4, and ABC Boston WCVB Channel 5 have all featured Carol's exemplary strength, grace, and determina- tion. "Carol inspires by shattering stereotypes," explains Carol's oncol- ogy nurse at Dana-Farber to WCVB's Kelley Tuthill, a cancer survivor herself. "She is truly a superhero." A love for running, family, and friends defines Carol, not cancer. 66 W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | f a l l 2 0 1 6 a profile of carol chaoui Although the 2016 Boston Marathon was my second slowest marathon ever, it was by far the most exciting and reward- ing one.
