Living in the Boston area I had heard of Dana-Farber but didn’t become involved until 1997 when I was asked to join a committee for the Discovery Ball in Palm Beach. Two years later I chaired the event and two weeks after that my sister was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer.

The doctors at Dana-Farber were available to us and her medical team in Richmond, Va., for consultation, ideas and encouragement. My sister did not survive her battle with cancer, but I saw first-hand the brilliant physicians and caring culture that are the hallmark of Dana-Farber.

Since then, many others in my family have been patients with much, much better outcomes. We continue to support Dana-Farber in any way that we can, and we encourage others to join us in the effort. We all need to make sure that Dana-Farber will ALWAYS be the Gold Standard for cancer treatment.
