The Boston Standard Company is proud to support Rachel Wolfberg and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute marathon team in tomorrow’s 119th Boston Marathon. One person can run a marathon, but it takes an immeasurable number of people and a lot of financial support to hit cancer where it lives.
By supporting runners like Rachel and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute team, we can all do our part to fight this disease, which will impact more than 1.6 million people in the US for the first time in 2015 alone. Each year, more than one-half million people in the US lose their battle with cancer, but research into the disease and strategies to fight it are producing exceptional results.
Breast cancer, prostate cancer and lung cancer alone will account for more than 40% of new cancer diagnoses in 2015, so finding new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat this disease is critical. Your support of people like Rachel Wolfberg and the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge can help achieve this goal.
