CenterStage Post Event

Thank you for your support of CenterStage and the
Mass General Cancer Center

The 2024 CenterStage gala held on May 9, 2024 was an inspiring evening—over 375 friends gathered at the Four Seasons Hotel Boston to celebrate and honor progress in the fight against cancer, raising more than $2.2 million for the Mass General Cancer Center. The evening highlighted the impactful work of our outstanding caregivers and the most promising advances in cancer research happening at the Krantz Family Center for Cancer Research.

The success of the evening would not have been possible without you. Your generosity and commitment ensure we can continue to make a difference in the lives of our patients and their families.

Irene's Dream Team

A beloved mom and grandmother, Irene feared the worst when she received a dire diagnosis of metastatic pancreatic cancer. But a multidisciplinary care team at the Mass General Cancer Center stepped in to provide an expert treatment plan that included chemotherapy, radiation and a Whipple surgery, a procedure for pancreatic cancer made routine by surgical oncologists at the Mass General Cancer Center. Today, Irene is in complete remission and lives with the hope of seeing her grandchildren grow up.
