    Nicole Hirsch

    Nicole Hirsch was born in Boston and grew up in Wellesley, Massachusetts. She graduated from Wellesley High School in 1998 and Tulane University in 2002. With her husband, Jared Hirsch, she enjoys travel and golf and spends time with her niece and two nephews.

    The first six years of her career were spent at Reebok International, where she was the Senior Marketing Manager for their women's lifestyle footwear line. Nicole is currently with Hasbro toys as their Senior Brand Manager for the G.I. Joe property. Their first major motion picture, GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra, will be coming out in 2009. Most of her marketing efforts are dedicated to the film.

    Nicole says: "I have just very recently become involved with Dana-Farber through several family acquaintances who connected me with the amazing group who create and pass out gift bags for the patients. That was my first experience with Dana-Farber. My mother's best friend passed away about three years ago from cancer. Since then I have been looking for the right venue to get involved with cancer-related fundraising and research. Not only in her memory, but also to help future generations beat this horrible disease.

    "I just hope to do my part to support Dana Farber and all of its amazing contributions to fighting cancer. I just wanted to thank everyone that currently sits on the Friends' Board for allowing me to be part of such an amazing group. I can already tell from speaking with so many dedicated and warm people that being a part of the Friends of Dana Farber is a rewarding opportunity and I look forward in the years to come helping in anyway that I can! I feel very lucky to be part of such a wonderful organization."
