When Lori J. Wirth, MD, has some free time from the demands of her role as Medical Director of the Center for Head and Neck Cancers at Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center, she can typically be found on the open sea on her 24-foot sailboat. In 2010, she had an opportunity to pass her love of the ocean on to patients affected by cancer through the foundation of Sailing Heals, a charitable organization that arranges free sailboat excursions for patients and caregivers.
