A Letter From The Chairman

Frank Strauss

Twenty-one years ago, 48 industry colleagues and friends played in our first golf tournament at Pembroke Country Club and raised $5,800 for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund. And so began a tradition that has grown over the years to become Expect Miracles Foundation. Today, Expect Miracles Foundation hosts hundred of financial services professionals at events in Massachusetts, California, and New York who come together to lend their support to our industry’s fight against cancer.

The success and longevity of Expect Miracles Foundation is a tribute to the loyal support of so many companies and people, a great many who have supported us every year since 1995. As your support and commitment have grown over the last 21 years, so too has Expect Miracles Foundation’s impact on cancer patients. Your support of the research and development work of the investigators at the Belfer Institute for Applied Cancer Science, Dana-Farber’s revolutionary laboratory, has helped facilitate the recent development of a new FDA-approved therapy for a rare type of lung cancer. Another drug is in Phase 3 trials. And this year we thrilled to also be supporting the Center for Experimental Therapeutics at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. You are saving lives and bringing people comfort and hope.

Your desire to have an impact on cancer patients has led us to develop new ways for you to support patient care programs nationwide through the grants awarded by our Miracle Maker Leadership Council. As the leaders of Expect Miracles Foundation’s mission, the Miracle Maker Leadership Council’s commitment, altruism and example have resulted in progress that you should be very proud of. You are making a difference in our collective objective to find new and better cures while providing patients with the care they need while being treated, and giving survivors a better future. Your generosity has impacted patients and their families and caregivers by providing the most essential element in beating cancer – hope.

It is a testament to the character of so many people and companies in our industry that Expect Miracles Foundation has been able to bring the financial services industry together in a collective fight against cancer. We are incredibly grateful for your loyal support. On behalf of our Board of Directors and staff, I thank you!

YOU are the cure.

With sincere appreciation and gratitude,
