Over the past four years, the Radio-Telethon has raised more than $5 million to support research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The 2006 event is expected to raise an additional $2.6 million! This incredible sum will directly support Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's search for cures and translate into lives saved.
