It was 1981 when Susan first met Billy Starr and his original Pan-Mass Challenge crew biking through Sturbridge where she worked. The commitment and drive of the PMC riders inspired her so much, she joined them a few years later. Today, Susan is a head PMC volunteer in her 24th year, and rides the entire route two weeks in advance so she can dedicate her time to volunteering PMC weekend. “The best part of PMC weekend is coming together with the same group year after year, my ‘PMC family.’ We get to experience firsthand the true spirit and mission of the PMC.” #Panmass2017 #WhyIPMC #WhyIRide

“My brother, Jay, was diagnosed with NUT Midline Carcinoma last year and passed just 11 weeks later. We know how devastating it can be to lose a loved one to cancer. We want to help other families and support finding a cure–we feel Dana-Farber can make that happen.”

“As teenagers, Jay and I grew up playing golf. Not only was Jay passionate about golf, he was very passionate about his family and friends. We thought starting a Jimmy Fund Golf tournament would be a perfect way to honor his life and to bring together those who loved him.” – Kerry Dion, Friends of Jay Dion Golf Tournament #JimmyFundGolf

Honor a family member while playing the sport you love. Learn more about Jimmy Fund Golf today: http://budurl.com/yqft.

Jimmy Fund Golf presented by Mohegan Sun is proudly sponsored in part by Comcast Spotlight and ’47.

There are only 17 zebrafish left! Join Valerie, who named a zebrafish in honor of her niece, Lillian, 10, who is now cancer-free. “Lillian was my first niece. We have had a special bond since the day she was born. She was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia on December 24, 2009, just two months after turning 3 years old. I felt like the world was turning upside down."

"I tried to figure out ways that I could help. I turned to fundraising for Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund. I also wanted to do something in honor of Lillian, and a naming opportunity seemed fitting. The zebrafish was something Lillian could understand at her young age. When I brought her to see it, she was amazed that her name was on a fish and that she could touch it!” - Valerie.

Name your zebrafish today to honor a loved one, thank a caregiver, or provide a message of hope to patients. Learn more: http://budurl.com/lz3s.
