The annual WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon holds a special place in the hearts of those impacted by cancer, including Red Sox president and CEO Larry Lucchino.
Lucchino, a two-time cancer survivor, has experienced the Red Sox/Jimmy Fund partnership from both sides, and he couldn't be any more appreciative of the efforts of those working at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Diagnosed with cancer in 1985, Lucchino knows what it means to fight, fight and fight some more to get to the point where he could be considered a survivor. His success just goes to show that cancer hardly defines who a person is and who a person can be.
Check out the video above to hear Lucchino discuss his experiences during this year's Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon.
