Sarah Couture, 14, is a 2013 PMC Pedal Partner and a cancer survivor who has grown-up living, breathing and playing soccer. When she was diagnosed with aplastic anemia in 2012 and began treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund Clinic, it was no surprise that a black and white soccer ball helped to pull her through her cancer experience.

When Sarah Vicidomini was 21-years-old, she was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Six weeks later, the unthinkable happened. Her father, John Coughlin, was diagnosed with stage three colorectal cancer. 

Nearly ten years ago, the two simultaneously battled life threatening illnesses. Previously known as the “father-daughter duo” in the oncology ward at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Sarah and John are now cancer free.
