Malini Prabhu, MD, MRCPsych, is a staff psychiatrist at Newton-Wellesley Hospital. She is running the Boston Marathon to support the fight against cancer. On Dr. Prabhu's fundraising website, she shares her story and that of her colleague and friend, Marlene Sullivan, a nurse working at the Vernon Cancer Center at Newton-Wellesley Hospital.
