Michelle is the Team Captain of the corporate Walk team, State Street - ADM. In 2018, Michelle was a Five-Star Pacesetter and walks to give back to Dana-Farber.
“In 2016 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and DFCI provided me with the most amazing medical care. DFCI is near and dear to my heart and to be able to give back through the Jimmy Fund Walk is very important to me and something I plan on doing for many years to come.”
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.
