If you ever find yourself in a conversation with Jennifer Goodman Linn (CHI, FIR, NYO (99-02), don’t be surprised if you end up feeling rather like an underachiever.
Jennifer, founder of Cycle for Survival, has already survived sarcoma – a rare form of cancer – six times. That translates into seven distinct courses of chemotherapy (some lasting as long as 16 months), five surgeries, and countless days spent focusing on recovery.
But simply surviving wasn’t enough for Jennifer. Not content with repeatedly overcoming the disease, she has worked tirelessly to raise awareness – and millions of dollars in funding – for rare and underfunded cancers.
