Sue has walked for 28 years and is a dedicated Pacesetter!
“The 2020 walk will be my 29th walk. I walk in gratitude for the fruitful research and progress in cancer treatment made possible by Dana-Farber's dedicated staff, in honor of the many folks I know who are in remission, in memory of my Mom and my husband’s Mom, who each bravely fought cancer many years ago, and in memory of my Dad, who loved to walk. ”
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.
