As part of the Arbella Insurance Group and Arbella Insurance Foundation’s partnership with The Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber, we are honored to recognize our newest Patient Partner, Chris Silver from South Berwick, Maine.
Through the Patient Partner program, Corporate Partners are invited to be matched with a patient, currently or previously treated at Dana-Farber. Partnering with an organization is an empowering opportunity for the patient to share their story, talk about their experience being treated at Dana-Farber and give back by serving as a community advocate. For us, as an organization, the patient partner relationship is a great way to rally Arbella’s community of employees, agents and customers around a specific patient’s story and truly gives a face to the cause, making the partnership that much more meaningful.
Chris has been undergoing treatment for melanoma at Dana-Farber for the last two years. During this time, his wife was also diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. With the support of each other, their families, the amazing staff at Dana-Farber, and generous donors and volunteers, Chris and his wife have both been able to receive the treatments they need and remain incredibly positive through it all.
Chris Silver is just one of the many people who has benefited from the wonderful fundraising done for cancer research and treatment. We are so excited to have Chris join our Arbella family!
