    Strong as Iron

     

    They got to know each other through signs and smiles across Jimmy Fund Way. The men and women of Boston Iron Workers Union Local 7 were building the Richard A. and Susan F. Smith Research Laboratories at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the children were waiting in the Jimmy Fund Clinic playroom for their cancer treatments.


    The silent yet powerful connection between the youngsters and the ironworkers is the subject of an award-winning trailer produced by Cronin and Company for the Jimmy Fund Theatre Collection program. Based on a true story and featuring the actual Jimmy Fund Clinic patients and ironworkers who were on the job in 1996, the film short is part of a 50-year tradition that helped launch the Jimmy Fund and that continues to support cancer research at Dana-Farber today.

     

    Somewhere under the concrete, on one of the steel girders, is John's name, as well.
