Marie was treated at Massachusetts General Hospital for Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma for 16 months. Marie lost her battle on June 19, 1999. During the time or Maris's illness and treatmeant the Petrilli family and friends appreciated the relationships and support they shared with their caregivers at MGH. They especially valued the caring, compassion and quality of Oncology nurses on the hearhcare team, which inspired them to creat a fund to honor those nurses and caregivers, and to improve patient care.
