Meet Our Heroes

Our patients are our Heroes. They inspire us to walk and raise critical funds for cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Traditionally you see our Walk Heroes along the route; this year, as we walk apart, their stories still serve as inspiration and bring us together. Meet them today in our Hero gallery below. To learn more about the Hero program and hear more from our Heroes, click here.
