A Message from Melany Duval

Dear Friends,

Over the past seven years, The Dana-Farber Campaign has enabled incredible progress at the Institute, the effects of which ripple out to help patients around the world. Our success thus far is thanks to you, our generous community members, who continue to show up and empower Dana-Farber to make breakthroughs that change cancer medicine forever.

As just one example, The Dana-Farber Campaign continues to be a catalyst for gifts that support our exceptional expertise. Our donors have established 20 new endowed chairs during the campaign, providing support for leaders across priority areas including cancer prevention, cancer care equity, nursing, and psychosocial oncology. Endowed positions like these ensure steady, permanent funding for our staff so that they can focus their time and energy where it is needed most: making the next great discovery.

While we celebrate our progress, at the same time our community mourns the loss of our dear friend and champion Larry Lucchino, who passed away in April. Words can’t express all that Larry did for Dana-Farber and all that he meant to the Jimmy Fund family. As an Institute Trustee, Chairman of the Jimmy Fund, member of The Dana-Farber Campaign Cabinet, and steadfast leader in our community, Larry set an example for all of us through his passion for our work and compassion for our patients. Dana-Farber is a special place because of people like Larry.

In times like these, we hold our community close. As we look to the future in these final months of our campaign and beyond, I hope you know how integral you are to our mission and our ability to keep changing the lives of patients everywhere.

Sincerely,

Melany N. Duval
Senior Vice President and Chief Philanthropy Officer
