Featured Pacesetters help in the battle against cancer

FEATURED JIMMY FUND WALK PACESETTER

Christine Carberry walks in memory of her husband, Tim, and in support of Dana-Farber.

“'I have no regrets, no bucket list,' said my husband Tim when first meeting with his oncologist. We didn't know what our journey would hold and our trip to DFCI made all the difference. Dr. Rubinson spent over an hour helping us understand Tim's condition and treatment options. Without that visit, we wouldn't have had the courage to choose aggressive treatment.”
