LIFE WITH CANCER AND AFTER

In January 2007, Adriana Sassoon, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. A former Elite model in her native Brazil, Adriana endured a frustrating series of biopsies in Miami, where the family was living. In search of the best care, Adriana quickly moved to Boston for treatment. Adriana recently celebrated her first cancer-free year.
