"As we gear up for August, this dinner was a great opportunity to spend time with the PMC family and reiterated for me just how committed this team is to pursuing progress. As always, we are confident that with your tireless efforts, the PMC will reach this year's incredible $48 million goal. This would take the total PMC fundraising for Dana-Farber to $595 million - a number that never ceases to amaze me and that will drive our efforts to better understand the causes of cancer and deliver the finest treatments to patients.
Billy, your vision has propelled the PMC to an extraordinary level of success. Dana-Farber could not have accomplished all that it has without your generous funds from the PMC, and we are incredibly fortunate to count on you as a friend and exceptional supporter. You have our enduring appreciation for all that you do to further our shared mission: to reduce the burden of cancer."
