When asked why he became involved with Dana-Farber, Institute Trustee Sushil Tuli tells the story of his late wife, Rita, and her treatment for colon cancer at another hospital. Rita spent many hours in an infusion center and, while she was treated well, Tuli wished she had a more comforting place to spend those hours.

“If Dana-Farber can save somebody’s life, they’re going to save it. There is no better institution than this.”

After Rita passed away, Tuli joined the Institute’s Board and later made a gift that named an infusion bay in Rita’s honor at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute – Chestnut Hill. The space is warmly lit, features many windows, and is a welcoming place that Tuli feels will bring comfort to all patients receiving treatment there.

Tuli also established a charitable gift annuity (CGA), which allows donors to make a gift now and receive lifetime income for themselves or a beneficiary, as well as potential tax benefits. Tuli felt this was the perfect way to give, as it enables planning for Dana-Farber’s future while at the same time planning for his family’s. With this gift, Tuli became a member of the Dana-Farber Society.

“I’m a true spokesperson for Dana-Farber,” said Tuli. “If Dana-Farber can save somebody’s life, they’re going to save it. There is no better institution than this.”
