    Heidi Fink

    Heidi Fink is a hard-working and dedicated mother of two with significant experience in various volunteer programs and charitable organizations. Dana-Farber is especially intriguing to her given its commitment to the research and treatment of cancer for women and children. She feels that her past experiences would result in her being a strong compliment to the Dana-Farber Friends organization.

    During her tenure as a volunteer for approximately four years at Children's Hospital she provided "hands-on" support and assistance to patients. That experience resulted in her joining the Children's Hospital League for an additional four years, two of which she served on the Board where she helped plan and coordinate many fund raising and child serving events. She has also been actively involved with the Food for Thought program helping to feed hungry children. She additionally worked for two years at Faulkner Hospital for the Sagoff Breast Cancer Center. Other volunteer programs in which she has taken part include Jewish Family Services, Big Brother, and various events for the Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital. More recently she assisted Friends board members Audra Lank and Dana Gerson with the Friends' Chefs Cooking for Hope and Saks "Key to the Cure" event.

    As an active member of Temple Beth Avodah in Newton she participated in many volunteer programs and boards for over seven years. She served as Vice President of the Sisterhood for three years and as Co-President for two years. Her responsibilities included the organization of many fundraisers, dinners and other events.

    Heidi says "I am excited about the opportunity of being involved with the Dana Farber Friends organization and am confident that my work ethic and past experience will result in my being an asset to this organization."
