Rob Butcher: I am so delighted Jill accepted our offer to join the Swim Across America board of directors

Rob Butcher, CEO of Cancer Innovation Fund & Swim Across America, shared the following on LinkedIn:

“In 2017, I had an introduction dinner with Jill DeSimone. She was curious about our non-profit model and how we awarded grants to early stage cancer research. When we left dinner, she told me, “I love what you do, I want to help.” Jill was the President of Merck US Oncology at the time. She always led by example encouraging her colleagues and friends to volunteer and giveback. When Jill retired, our friendship grew even more as we catch up for breakfast and coffee on visits through Florida (and she came to my grandmother’s 99 birthday celebration–that is the type of person Jill is). She is passionate about innovation and service, and helping others. I am so delighted Jill accepted our offer to join the Swim Across America board of directors. A heartfelt thank you to Andre Spring, Claire Mulhearn, Teresa (Terri) Mueller, Michael Levey, Joanne Monahan, Bruce Cellura, Justin Holko, Jennifer F., Randy Benson, Jennifer Sierra, Frank Clyburn, Barbara Wienants, Tara Kinslow, Cheryl Donnelly, Stewart Hackney, Kenneth C. Frazier, Jessie Arena who supported Jill and her energy to giveback.”
