  • 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.

    Deb Drapalla and Larry Fahey
    Co-Chairs, Dana-Farber Leadership Council
