The Cam Neely Foundation was launched in 1995 by Boston Bruins President and alumnus, Cam Neely, after he lost his parents, Marlene and Michael Neely, to cancer. The organization recognizes the important and overwhelming needs that cancer patients and their families face after a diagnosis. The Foundation provides a warm and welcoming environment through its signature space, The Neely House, while partnering with Tufts Medical Center to support research and future treatment efforts.

The Foundation is proud to embark on its latest joint venture with The Friedman School of Nutrition and Science Policy at Tufts University to create The Neely Integrative Center. This world class center, located in Boston, will utilize evidence-based nutrition and science to positively influence the health and well-being of cancer and autoimmune patients.

Switzerland Tourism

Switzerland is a unique destination where visitors can explore four cultures all in one place: German, French, Italian, and Romansh. Switzerland residents lead a sustainable lifestyle and promote their sustainability commitment to all visitors. For example, all Swiss regions are easily accessible by train thanks to Swiss National Railways, which generates 90 percent of its electricity from hydropower.

The country is a global leader in sustainability, ranking #1 internationally in the Environmental Performance Index (EPI). A perfect escape for winter and summer enthusiasts alike, the Alpine mountains cover a whopping 65 percent of the country’s total surface area. From skiing to vast hiking trails and breathtaking walking routes, these scenic treks can be combined with a swim in one of Switzerland’s 1,500 lakes and rivers.
