John Farrell starts ‘Farrell’s Fighters’ ticket program for lymphoma patients 05.25.17 at 1:20 pm ET
By   |  Comments Off on John Farrell starts ‘Farrell’s Fighters’ ticket program for lymphoma patients

John Farrell announced on Thursday he has started a program called “Farrell’s Fighters” to invite patients battling lymphoma and their families to a Red Sox game each month throughout the season.

The program includes VIP seats, a tour of the ballpark, a meeting with Farrell, a meal in the Dell EMC Club restaurant and a chance to watch batting practice.

Farrell is a lymphoma survivor who was diagnosed with and successfully treated for the disease in 2015. Farrell’s Fighters will launch with patients from Massachusetts General Hospital, where Farrell was treated, and will expand to include patients from other hospitals in the area.

“I hope this program can provide a positive, momentary break for the patients and their families from the daily rigor of treatment, and for baseball to be a tonic for them, as it was for me,” Farrell said in his statement.

The first patient set to take part is 42-year-old Nate Bouley of Sudbury. Bouley was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2015 and is in remission for the third time. He will attend the Red Sox-Mariners game on May 28 with his wife and two children.
