Recently, Sisson Engineering has teamed up with Cynosure, Inc. who has committed to raise money for life-saving cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute by joining the Pan Mass Challenge (PMC). The PMC is an annual bike-a-thon that crosses the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. For the PMC, a team of 15 Cynosure employees will be training for and completing various routes on August 7, 2016. They are committed to raise donations to support Dana Farber’s mission to provide expert, compassionate care to children and adults with cancer while advancing the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, cure, and prevention of cancer and related diseases while improving the quality of life for patients and their families.
The PMC has raised over $500 million for adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through the Jimmy Fund. The event donates 100% of every rider raised dollar directly to the cause. The PMC generates more than 50% of the Jimmy Fund’s annual revenue and it is Dana-Farber’s single largest contributor.
The need for cancer research and improving care is critical. Over 14 million Americans have some form of cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 1.7 Americans will be diagnosed with cancer in 2016. Funds provided by the PMC allow the Dana Farber Institute to direct dollars to the most urgent needs, promising programs, and patient care initiatives.
