Dear PMCers, 

Dr. Laurie Glimcher speaks at the PMCFor four decades, you have taken us on an amzing ride!  Since 1980, the PMC’s partnership with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute has generated a staggering $654 million to foster adult and pediatric patient care and research at the Institute.  So, it is fitting that this year’s 40th anniversary is represented by the ruby, a gemstone that symbolizes eternal commitment.  A special thanks to Billy Starr and everyone on the Pan-Mass Challenge team for your tireless efforts, organizing and contributing to this amazing feat year after year.
