Learn About 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. Traditionally you see our Walk Heroes along the route but this year, as we walk apart, their stories still serve as inspiration and bring us together.
