What is the one hundred?
Created and sponsored by the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center, the one hundred is an annual event celebrating 100 individuals and organizations who have dedicated themselves to making a difference in the fight against cancer. They are doctors and nurses spending their days caring for patients and their families, advocates fighting to raise awareness for the cancer cause, researchers working tirelessly in their laboratories to make important discoveries, and philanthropists contributing generously to make a cure possible. Funds raised at the event support the Cancer Center’s patient care, research, education and community outreach programs.
