    By: Tom Leyden


    NORFOLK, Mass. - Marcia Haigh is you, she is me, she is anyone who never thought they could run the Boston Marathon. Marcia's story may change your tune.

    The 54-year-old mother of three works as a nurse in two different hospitals and is running her first marathon to raise money for Newton-Wellesley Hospital.  

    Haigh said she's running "in honor of all the people in my life that have been touched by cancer: My family, friends, friends of friends, my oncology massage clients, and all the caregivers and their supportive families."

    Her goal is to raise $5,500 for the MGH Cancer Center at Newton Wellesley Hospital. To donate, visit this link.
