Larry Lucchino, chairman and principal owner of the Pawtucket Red Sox, Boston Red Sox president/CEO emeritus, and chairman of the Jimmy Fund

Larry is a two-time cancer survivor. In 1985, when he was vice president and general counsel of the Baltimore Orioles, Lucchino was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma at age 40. He received chemotherapy and an autologous bone marrow transplant at Dana-Farber. Then in 1999, Lucchino was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and underwent surgery at Johns Hopkins to remove the cancerous tissue. Larry has experienced the Jimmy Fund/Red Sox partnership from both sides—as a patient and as a part of the Red Sox. This is Larry’s second year at the chairman of the Jimmy Fund.
