In 2013, Dana-Farber patient Darby Stott launched Team Darby to raise funds in the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, in support of research in metastatic breast cancer led by her oncologist, Eric P. Winer, MD. Although Darby passed away in 2014, devoted family and friends have continued to walk in her honor each year, raising $121,000 in 2020 to push their 8-year total past an incredible $1 million for The Darby Fund—the 12th Walk team to achieve this milestone in the event’s 32-year history. In December, more than 30 family members, friends, and supporters of Team Darby gathered online for a virtual celebration of this tremendous accomplishment. They were joined by Winer, who spoke on the progress that has been made in treating this devastating disease, thanks to their support.
