The one hundred honoree: Beverly Moy, MD, MPH

Mass General Giving

Beverly Moy, MD, MPH, is a medical oncologist specializing in breast cancer at the Mass General Cancer Center. Dr. Moy’s patients value her blend of compassionate care and cutting-edge compassion as well as her medical expertise.

“Beverly Moy’s keen intelligence and dedication to research instantly impressed me,” says Jane Winter, a patient. “I felt safe in her hands and I have been cancer free for four years. She makes me feel like we are fellow warriors in the fight against cancer.

“She is laser-focused on the science of beating this disease,” Jane adds. “Her heart is in the outcomes for each patient. She is an empathetic caregiver, a fierce scholar and a skilled healer.”

“Now treatment is over, but as a cancer survivor I will have a long-term relationship with Dr. Moy. I feel very fortunate to be in her kind and capable hands,” says Jane.

In January 2007, Debbera Drake was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer related to a genetic defect. “At our first meeting, Dr. Moy claimed me as her patient,” says Debbera. “And I told her, ‘We’re going to make history together,” says Debbera.

Dr. Moy has enrolled Debbera in a Phase I trial of a promising drug. “The results to date are encouraging,” says Debbera. “We just may be rewriting history.”
