Portland, Maine. On Wednesday, May 11th we were fortunate to welcome Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee to the stage of the Abromson Center at the University of Southern Maine for a fascinating lecture covering his Pulitzer Prize-winning book, "The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer."

In the course of the evening Dr. Mukherjee covered the history of cancer, including a native Maine boy, Einar Gustafson (later nicknamed "Jimmy"), who would go on to become the inspiration for The Jimmy Fund at the Dana-Farber Institute.
