A full-circle journey for cancer survivor
Fourth-year medical student Daryl Blaney knows better than most why supporting the UMass Medicine Cancer Walk and the work at the Cancer Center for Excellence is important. Blaney was successfully treated for childhood leukemia at UMass Memorial when he was just three years old, a formative experience that inspired him to want to become a doctor himself. He is eager to give back to the institution he credits with saving his life, especially to the doctors and nurses who treated him with compassion and skill when he was just a little boy. Here is Daryl's story.
