The Foundation’s donor and support base include the top financial firms in the country along with industry leaders.


Mr. Heavey began his career as a prep school history teacher before entering the financial services industry.  He started out with ClearSky, where he served as Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

“Like too many people, my family has experienced the devastating effects of cancer.  But we have also witnessed the wonderful dedication, compassion, and unyielding devotion of medical professionals and the passionate desire of donors committed to raising the funds necessary to make cancer history. It is an absolute honor and privilege to join Expect Miracles to help our donors and corporate sponsors be the cure,” said Heavey. “With events such as our golf tournaments, the 10th Anniversary Wine and Spirits Charity Event on November 7 in Boston, and the Miracle Maker Leadership Council for major donors, the financial industry demonstrates its leadership and commitment to fighting cancer.  I am extremely proud to have the opportunity to work with such devoted people and companies.”
