Jimmy Fund Chairman Larry Lucchino Shares His Experiences With Organization

Larry Lucchino was named the chairman of The Jimmy Fund in April, and his previous experiences inside their walls helped push him toward the new role.

Lucchino, of course, had a close relationship with The Jimmy Fund via his time as president of the Boston Red Sox, but he's also a former cancer patient himself.

Lucchino joined NESN's Tom Caron on "Red Sox First Pitch" during the WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon on Monday to discuss what The Jimmy Fund means to and has done for him and how the Red Sox have played a part.

The 2016 WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon takes place Monday and Tuesday. You can give a gift and learn more here.
