About Us

Since its founding in 1948, the Jimmy Fund has raised millions of dollars through thousands of grassroots efforts to help save lives and give hope to cancer patients everywhere.
Dana-Farber was founded by Sidney Farber, MD, in 1947 and provides adults and children with cancer with the best treatment available today while developing tomorrow's cures through cutting-edge research.

The Jimmy Fund solely supports the fight against cancer at Boston's Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, raising funds for adult and pediatric cancer care and research to improve the chances of survival for cancer patients around the world.
