11th Annual WEEI/NESN Telethon with the JImmy Fund to raise money for DFCI cancer research and care

What an incredible effort by so many volunteers, radio and TV personalities, Red Sox players and management and contributors from across the United States.  This is the 11th annual Telethon and since its inception in 2002, it has raised more than $30 million to support pediatric and adult care and research at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.

I was fortunate to represent DFCI as a patient volunteer and participate on a few Radio and TV shows again, my second year.  I hope to set up a separate page on this site that presents some highlights, photos and perhaps some videos. It's amazing how much effort is put in to make this a success, having raised $3,311,563 this year.  Although she is well known, much of her work is done behind the scense; Lisa Schereber, the Director of Patient and Family Programs deserves the BIGGEST HUG possible for her accomplishments and special interests and care over the many young cancer survivors introduced during this Telethon.  Also behind the scenes and an incredible force is Jason Wolf, Vice President Programing for Entercom/WEEI who works tirelessly to create public awareness which directly helps achieve the fundraising goals each year.  Way to go Jason!  

It was fun to meet Red Sox players Dustin Pedroia (again), Clay Buchholz and a quick hello with Adrian Gonzalez and Jarrod Saltalmacchia.  Later, the entire team stopped by to meet with volunteers and fans. More info and photos on a separate page.
