The one hundred honoree: Judy Roberts

Mass General Giving

Judy Roberts is a lung cancer survivor, impassioned advocate and music industry executive who believes in the power of music to lift spirits and bring people together. She is using her talents to broaden awareness of lung cancer, raise funds for research and bring the pleasures of music to patients and their families.

In 2006, Judy, a lifelong nonsmoker, was diagnosed with bronchioloalveolar carcinoma, a rare lung cancer. Following her successful treatment, Judy has channeled her gratitude and professional savvy into developing events that benefit patient care, advocacy and research. In November, she spearheaded a fundraising concert at Symphony Hall in Boston with the Playing For Change Foundation, which fosters global understanding through music and the arts.

Judy has organized concerts for cancer patients and their families, and has donated music for the Friends of the Mass General Cancer Center benefit.
