Larry Lucchino Explains How Jimmy Fund Uses Generous Donations (Video)



When you give a gift to the Jimmy Fund, it's not something that goes to waste. It doesn't have time to.

"These dollars don't just go into some bank account and sit idly," said cancer survivor and Red Sox president/CEO Larry Lucchino. "They are quickly transformed into checks that go into researchers, that go into laboraties, and new ideas come out of this. Every day, there are new breakthroughs — they may be large, they may be small, they may be steps along the way. But these dollars translate into fresh ideas, and these fresh ideas translate into new modalities of treatment, and it makes a gigantic difference to all of us."
