The one hundred honoree: Sumner & Emilene Brown

Mass General Giving

Sumner Brown is a long-time friend and supporter of Massachusetts General Hospital and has committed significant philanthropy to the hospital. His wife Emilene was a dedicated nurse at Mass General for 18 years. Emmie lost her battle with lung cancer on November 26, 2006, and since then, her husband has generously supported the Mass General Cancer Center in her memory. While providing vital unrestricted funds to the Cancer Center, he has also funded the Sumner W. Brown Skilled Nursing Laboratory and contributed to a nursing scholarship. By advancing care and research that were important to Emmie, Sumner continues her life-sustaining work on behalf of countless other patients.
