Cancer is very personal to me as it is for many people. I lost my mother to lung cancer. While she faced her illness with enormous courage, it was heartbreaking to watch. I want to help end the suffering of those with cancer and I believe fervently that Dana-Farber is the place to do that. That’s why I’m inspired to lead this incredible organization. Nowhere else will you find the most brilliant scientists, most talented, devoted physicians and nurses, and most passionate people, working toward a singular goal to reduce the burden of cancer. This is the place that will change the cancer landscape through new discoveries and new treatments. Together, we will help more people celebrate more milestones and cherish more time with the ones they love.
