K&C - Larry Lucchino, chairman and principal owner of the Pawtucket Red Sox and Boston Red Sox President/CEO Emeritus, and chairman of the Jimmy Fund with Dr. Lee Nadler, senior vice president, Experimental Medicine, medical oncologist, Dana-Farber

Larry is a two-time cancer survivor. In 1985, when he was vice president and general counsel of the Baltimore Orioles, Lucchino was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma at age 40. He received chemotherapy and an autologous bone marrow transplant at Dana-Farber. Then in 1999, Lucchino was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and underwent surgery at Johns Hopkins to remove the cancerous tissue. Larry has experienced the Jimmy Fund/Red Sox partnership from both sides—as a patient and as a part of the Red Sox.

Dr. Nadler was Larry’s physician when he was a patient at Dana-Farber. Dr. Nadler can speak about how cancer care has changed in the last decade and about Dana-Farber’s contributions to the current landscape of cancer treatment.
