Since 2012, Linda Turcotte, has been a Pacesetter each year, raising over $75,000 for breast cancer research with her team, Maurine Cindy Paul and Patrick's Troopers.
“My late sister-in-law, Maurine, was a willing participant in clinical trials—now two of those drugs are approved and used to treat breast cancer. Maurine would have been so happy with our accomplishments. I know this is what she would have wanted me to do.”
Pacesetters are invited to special events to network and share fundraising ideas, as well as learn more about the latest research advances and patient care happening every day at Dana-Farber.
