Created and supported by the Mass General Cancer Center, the one hundred honors 100 Everyday Amazing individuals and groups each year who are changing how we fight cancer. Their commitment inspires us all to take action. “Varsity rower Daniel Aziz literally launched his annual breast cancer fundraising and awareness initiative, Pull for a Cure, on the water.
