The Jimmy Fund Clinic at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is a place where children and their families find hope.

For people in New England and around the globe, the Jimmy Fund Clinic is one of the world's premier centers for pediatric cancer research and treatment. Starting in the 1940s, when Institute founder Sidney Farber, M.D. used drug therapy to achieve the first-ever remissions of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia, Dana-Farber researchers have made strides against virtually every type of cancer that strikes children, from solid tumors that involve individual organs to those that affect blood or lymph.

The clinic is also a place where caring doctors and nurses provide expert and compassionate care for children with cancer.

The Jimmy Fund Clinic follows the "family-centered care" philosophy of Institute founder Dr. Sidney Farber, assuring that a patient's psychological, family and spiritual needs, as well as their medical needs, are met.

Through a unique and long-standing collaboration, Jimmy Fund Clinic patients receive inpatient care when needed at nearby Boston Children's Hospital, the nation's premier pediatric medical center.

Beginning in March of 2013, the Jimmy Fund Clinic at Dana-Farber will be undergoing renovation and expansion.
