Message from the Co-Chairs
The Dana-Farber Leadership Council is the most important and fulfilling philanthropy in which we are involved. Many of us have been touched by cancer in some way, be it through a personal experience, with a family member, a colleague, or a friend. The
work we do through the Leadership Council directly helps the fight against cancer by raising money for and increasing awareness of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's lifesaving work.
The Council provides members with an incredible forum for learning about strides being made against cancer and brings together a superb group of more than 120 professionals representing the Greater
Boston business community.
We are passionate about the Leadership Council and Dana-Farber. We welcome the opportunity to talk with you about the Council and why we are involved.
Jeff Beale and Deb Drapalla
