Dear Billy and the PMC community,

I am delighted to thank you again on behalf of all of us at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for this extraordinary $4 million gift from the PMC riders that includes a generous $1 million match from a passionate PMC rider/donor, to support our Emergency Response Fund. The pace at which you raised this critical unrestricted funding together is simply astonishing and is a direct reflection of the unparalleled commitment for which the PMC family is universally admired. I am overwhelmed with gratitude to each of you for answering the call to help so quickly, and I know everyone at Dana-Farber shares my profound appreciation for your hard work.

At Dana-Farber, the source of our strength has always been our people — from our dedicated frontline staff and investigators to essential partners like the PMC — who do so much to bring a cancer-free future closer by the mile. Yet again, you have proven that no challenge is insurmountable for the committed PMC community, and your pivotal contribution could not have arrived at a more opportune moment. Empowered by these critical resources, our dedicated team is hitting a higher gear in advancing life-changing research — including an ambitious slate of studies aimed at developing new tests and treatments for COVID-19 — while providing personalized care that addresses the comprehensive and swiftly evolving needs of our patients and families amid the current outbreak. Now, more than ever, your philanthropy has a deep and broad impact across our labs and clinics, and I hope you are as proud as we are of the important difference you are making to those we serve.

Please know that our patients believe in you, I believe in you, and we are all so grateful for your commitment to the mission of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Thank you again for your loyal support, and I will be joining you for the 2020 PMC in whatever form it takes. Until then, best wishes for your continued good health.

Warmly,


Laurie H. Glimcher, MD
President and CEO, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
