|On October 25, The Friends of the Mass General Cancer Center hosted its 27th annual fall benefit, Couture for Cancer Care, and brought nearly 300 together at the InterContinental Boston Hotel for a fashion show with patients and their caregivers to celebrate survivorship.
The Friends of the Mass General Cancer Center are volunteers who raise funds to bridge exceptional medical and supportive cancer care through innovative programs that promote whole-person healing.
Co-Chaired by Marion Martignetti of Osterville, Leslie McCafferty of Lexington, and Kay Mukherjee of Back Bay, the evening raised $245,000 to fund a wide range of supportive care services, all of which are provided to cancer patients and families at no cost.
TV host, producer and personality Jenny Johnson of the South End welcomed the crowd and kicked off the fashion show with David P. Ryan, MD, Clinical Director, Mass General Cancer Center and Chief, Division of Hematology/Oncology. Together, they announced the patient/doctor duos as they walked the runway, cheered on by their friends and family in the crowd. President of the Friends, Back Bay’s Brenda Warshaw, concluded the show.Photography by MGH Photography
