Jeff's targeted therapy has kept his advanced lung cancer at bay.
Jennifer Drucker was born in Chicago, Ill., and grew up in
Miami, Fla. She and her husband Jeffrey have three children: Emily,
Matthew, and Daniel. In l995 Jennifer graduated number one in her
class at Emory Business School. She worked for one year at Anderson
Consulting, then at IBM. Currently at home, she is very involved at
her children's school, where she has been a room parent, runs
"Grandparents Day," and works in the school library on a weekly
basis. Her special interests include philanthropy, exercise,
reading, and cooking. For five years Jennifer has been a productive
member of Aid for Cancer Research, an all-volunteer organization
which raises funds for cancer research in the major hospitals in
Boston, including Dana-Farber. Its prominent medical advisory board
has included Drs. Sidney Farber, Emil Frei III, and Stephen E.
Upon becoming involved with Dana-Farber, through Friends' member
Audra Lank, Jennifer quickly devoted her time and energy to the
Friends' Great Chefs event. She says: "Getting involved with
Dana-Farber is quite important to me. On July 13, 2007, my nephew -
three years old at the time - was diagnosed with leukemia. He also
has downs syndrome. He lives in Miami, and has been undergoing
treatment for the about a year. He is doing well, however we have
had many bumps along the way. He will not finish his treatment
until September 18, 2010. My husband and I travel back and forth on
a regular basis to also help my sister. Needless to say, this has
changed my family's life forever. Getting involved with Dana-Farber
is a way for me to help from a distance."
