Dear Friends,

When I first stepped into my role at Dana-Farber in 2019, I was immediately struck by the endless compassion and dedication of the people around me. Year after year, event after event, breakthrough after breakthrough, the Dana-Farber and Jimmy Fund community shows up in great numbers and with great generosity. This community is truly changing the future of cancer care.

We know that Dana-Farber is special, and The Dana-Farber Campaign has given us an opportunity to expand our reach and grow our community—making an important difference to patients who need us. As one example, I was so inspired to see that more than 8,400 people participated in the 35th annual Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai—sharing their time and support to advance our mission. It was a moving reminder that people are the key to our success. People drive progress.

On that note, I want to take a moment to congratulate one of our own on 13 years of service to this incredible community. Our longtime Impact editor, Lori Dougherty, retired in early January. For more than a decade, Lori helped bring stories of donor generosity to life on the pages of Impact. Her work behind the scenes played an important role in supporting our lifesaving mission, and all of us are wishing her the very best in her next chapter.

Thank you, all of you, for your role in bringing the next breakthroughs to our patients. I look forward to seeing what we accomplish next—together.

Sincerely,

Melany N. Duval
Senior Vice President and Chief Philanthropy Officer
