Dear Boston SIM Community,
At a recent meeting, the Boston SIM Board agreed to donate $250 to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Michael Brooks’ name. I thought we’d easily multiply that many times over if we passed a hat around to the chapter and the national membership. To facilitate the fundraising, a giving page has been set up on the Dana-Farber Cancer website:
In sharing stories and memories with others since his passing, it has become clear to me that I was not the only one to receive boundless encouragement and guidance from Michael. He was dedicated not only to growing and supporting his home chapter in Boston, but also to the greater national SIM community and to every individual as well. Michael embodied the mission and ideals of SIM and gave his all up until the very end.
I’m not sure anyone will ever be able to match what he gave of himself, but he has set a bar that inspires me every day. In memory of Michael, and to demonstrate that his passion for giving back lives on at SIM, please consider making a donation.
Amanda Moore on behalf of the Boston SIM Board of Directors
