“…in a city that really sees tradition as a commodity, and the money that follows it sees it as a commodity, it takes bravery to advocate for the future. I hope that the support or mechanisms—whether they be facilities or philanthropic money or corporate money or whatever—get behind a change about innovation and advancement of our art forms as opposed to preservation. And that will determine a lot with what kind of city we become”. — Gil Rose to Improper Bostonian Magazine on the future of and the in

Beware of this WhatsApp # +1 (404) 644-6264, this number may have been stolen. Was forced for months to send money to an account number at the Commercial Bank in Munich, I have the account number. I was also urged via the mail address [email protected]. I suppose a scammer, called Phillip Allen, or a whole scam organization. Have received a fake ID and have found a proper ID on the Internet. Got another video of his house, allegedly at Saratoga Street 77 in Boston MA.

Who does this house possibly know and possibly this person?

“We’ve been working to build a greater sense of community within Nursing and Patient Care Services, and starting a Jimmy Fund Walk team sounded like the perfect way to ‘do good together.’ I walk to further connect with the other nurses I see every day – we are so lucky to have the nurses that we do. They are not only experts in their fields, but they are compassionate and caring in ways that stand out above others.” – Anne Gross, Ph.D., R.N., a member of Team Patient Care for a Cure

This , we thank all of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s nurses for the incredible care they give patients every day, and for their dedication and support in raising funds to help conquer cancer.
