Virtual, Inc. proudly announces its continued support and commitment to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund as a Major Sponsor of Jimmy Fund Day at Fenway presented by DraftKings on June 10.

As with many organizations, cancer has touched the lives of many at Virtual and within its client base. The company's involvement with Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund began through its relationship with Bob Russo, the first general manager of the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), a long-time client of Virtual. Russo’s son, Rob, valiantly battled GIST, a rare form of stomach cancer, for two decades before tragically losing his life in 2021. In 2009, Virtual's CEO Andy Freed was diagnosed with metastatic thyroid cancer, and thanks to the exceptional care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, he remains cancer-free to this day. Devastatingly, in 2021, Virtual's founder, Bruce Rogers, succumbed to glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain tumor.

By becoming a Major Sponsor of Jimmy Fund Day at Fenway presented by DraftKings, Virtual, Inc. is pleased to support the crucial cancer research conducted at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, which provides direct support and care to pediatric and adult patients. Since 1992, over $8.6 million has been raised through this event, driving Dana-Farber's mission to strike out cancer and make groundbreaking advancements in cancer prevention, treatment, and care. Virtual has been a supporter since 2007.

"Our mission at Virtual is to help our clients make their mark on the world. However, our drive to make a difference goes beyond our clients; it is deeply rooted in our commitment to the community. Cancer has touched the lives of many within our extended Virtual family, and our involvement has become intensely personal," said Andy Freed, CEO of Virtual, Inc. "By increasing our support for Jimmy Fund Day, we are working towards preventing and defeating this devastating disease."

Jimmy Fund Day at Fenway presented by DraftKings is part of Dana-Farber’s ongoing and ambitious, multi-year fundraising effort to prevent, treat and defy cancer by accelerating revolutionary science, extraordinary care, exceptional expertise, and essential opportunities. The Dana-Farber Campaign seeks to:

  • Pursue innovative early-stage research
  • Speed new drugs into clinical trials
  • Expand access to care and reduce cancer disparities
  • Support special programs that address the physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual needs of patients and their families
  • Fuel the best and brightest doctors and researchers in cancer medicine
