DIPG is a rare pediatric cancer that is aggressive, unforgiving, inoperable, and has no known cure. In 20217, the family of Devin Suau, a six-year-old Framingham resident, was told that he had just eight months to two years to live after being diagnosed with DIPG. On Oct. 20, 2017, just shy of nine months following his DIPG diagnosis, and just one week before what would have been his 7th birthday, Devin lost his battle with DIPG. In 2020, in Devin's honor, The #WhyNotDevin Foundation to End DIPG was formed. The Foundation works to support families facing a DIPG diagnosis and bring attention to DIPG. Join Mayor Yvonne M. Spicer and Devin’s Mom Christine Soutter Suau to learn more about DIPG. Attendees will be able to pose questions during the hour via Zoom's Chat function. If you cannot attend and have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: October 18 Community Hour. A video recording of the Zoom will be available following for those who cannot attend.

Join regional experts for a virtual event to discuss how the pandemic has impacted commercial workspace and discuss ways to help commercial space thrive in the Framingham and the region.
As the pandemic continues to impact commercial activity – and as the status of commercial workspace remains in flux – Framingham and surrounding communities face a challenge: what will happen to vacant office space and other commercial properties after the pandemic? What can the City and others who support the region’s economic development do to help commercial space pivot to survive and thrive?
Join leaders to discuss the status of commercial workspace and how business and community leaders can address the challenge.
