LUNGevity Foundation funds critical lung cancer research including local research projects conducted at Boston Universities and Hospitals as well as advocacy, education, and support across the country.

About Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is the U.S.’s top cancer killer, claiming approximately 160,000 lives per year.  It is a devastating disease that can afflict anyone, regardless of smoking history, gender, or ethnicity. 

While colon, breast, and prostate cancer all have reliable early detection tests, lung cancer does not.  Currently, only 17% of people diagnosed with lung cancer survive five years post-diagnosis, a percentage significantly lower than that for each of these other cancers.  And with early detection, there is hope.

With the support of our donors, LUNGevity funds research to develop early detection methods and targeted therapies for lung cancer.

The Statistics - Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death, regardless of gender or ethnicity.  1 in 14 people will be diagnosed with lung cancer, and it  kills more people than colorectal, breast and pancreatic cancers combined. Lung cancer kills almost twice as many women as breast cancer, and almost three times as many men as prostate cancer.  About 60% of all new lung cancer diagnoses are among people who have never smoked or are former smokers.  Lung cancer accounts for 14% of all new cancer diagnoses but 27% of all cancer deaths.

Case Studies in Brazilian Entrepreneurism

The United States is the 2nd largest commerical partner of Brazil and historically one of its most important investors. Today, in turn, Brazil is a significant investor in the US. Join us for a reception and panel discussion exploring Brazilian investment and entrepreneurial success in the US complemented by insight from members of the Brazilian business delegation visiting Boston exploring Brazil’s contributions to the ‘Innovation Economy.’

Brazil-Today, in association with Drummond, is honored to be working with the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham, of São Paulo which is bringing a high-level business delegation to Boston. The delegation asked to meet Brazilian entrepreneurs who have been successful in the US market - in part to understand the factors in their American success, in part to have the opportunity to test their own ideas on entrepreneurism and share their own success stories. In sum, there will be learning for participants in both markets.

The panel, moderated by Bruno Drummond, includes three local - deservedly well-known - Brazilian entrepreneurs:

Márcia Fournier (BioArray)

Overcoming Adversity with Attitude, Choice, and Purpose

Overcoming Adversity with Attitude, Choice, and Purpose

Julia Fox Garrison

This event will be a 75 minute presentation with a reception to follow.

Presentation, Reception, and Book Signing:  $50.00

Presentation only:  $35.00


Julia Fox Garrison is the author of Don’t Leave Me This Way (or when I get back on my feet you’ll be sorry). The book chronicles her struggle to regain control over her life and her body, following a massive hemorrhage resulting in a paralyzing stroke. Julia has harnessed her first-hand experience in battling the medical establishment into a compelling message of strength and hope. Wielding her trademark humor and optimism, she transcends the sobering subject of stroke to show how anyone facing a life challenge can overcome adversity through laughter, boundless enthusiasm and unflinching determination.


Julia has been a special guest on local, US and Canadian television and radio programs.  She is a highly sought after and acclaimed Keynote Speaker, conducting hundreds of lectures and presentations nationwide. Julia has lectured at medical conferences where she evangelizes for humaneness in medicine. Speaking from the patient’s perspective, she espouses the value of quality patient care. She also speaks to support and patient advocacy groups, businesses and community organizations where she shares her story of personal triumph against overwhelming odds.


Julia was raised in Andover, MA, in a loving if chaotic household with eight brothers; an upbringing that no doubt made her battle ready for the literal fight of her life. She graduated from Katherine Gibbs School, Boston and Champlain College, Burlington, VT. Julia was an accomplished Manager of Software Support at her company when she suffered the debilitating injury that effectively ended her career in the corporate world. Thus began her journey of rediscovery. Julia currently resides with her husband Jim, son Rory, and dog Shaggy in a suburb outside Boston.

Realities of Commercializing Life Sciences in 2014

Biotechnology start-ups have never faced a funding environment as difficult as we have today. Investing priorities have shifted toward late stage investments, while global financial uncertainty and a history of more failures than successes in biotechnology investing have reduced the amount of money available for early stage commercialization. How can the early stage biotechnology company adapt to face these challenges, especially with respect to pre-Venture Capital funding?

The short answer is that common but inefficient practices which may have been tolerable in the past, need to be revised to improve effective collaboration among universities, entrepreneurs, industry, and early-stage investors.

Three entrepreneurs will discuss the realities of the commercialization landscape in 2014. An inventor/scientist (Scott Dessain), a post-exit business professor/angel investor (Scott Fishman), and an MD/serial company founder (Greg Licholai) draw on decades of experience to show how improved practices can translate into greater success for everyone involved in biotech commecialization.

NOTE: We will have a direct "Longwood to i-lab" bus for this event (one trip). More info will be sent to registrants.

Reducing Stress through Guided Meditation

Meditation means contemplation or reflection with concentration on a particular theme, thought, awareness, subject or object. Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years. It originally was meant to help deepen the understanding of the sacred and mystical forces of life. These days, meditation is commonly used for relaxation and stress reduction. It's considered a type of mind-body complementary medicine.

Meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace, balance, and inner guidance that benefits both your emotional well-being and your overall health. These benefits don't end when your meditation session ends. Meditation can help carry you more calmly through your day and may improve certain medical conditions.

In this one-hour workshop, we will be combining Guided Meditation with Mindfullness Meditation. 

Guided meditation is sometimes called guided imagery or visualization. With this method of meditation you form mental images of places or situations you find relaxing while using your senses as you are guided. 

Mindfullness meditation is based on having an increased awareness and being in the present moment. In mindfulness meditation, you broaden your conscious awareness.

Whether meditating for the first time or exploring new forms of meditation, join us for an evening of contemplation and reflection while broadening your conscious awareness.

5:30-6:30 - Workshop

6:30-7:30 - Networking

Wine and Cheese will be provided!

This initiative proved so successful that Hollister has added customized Leadership Development programs to its service offerings through the newly formed Hollister Institute.
