The Jimmy Fund Clinic at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

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

As one of the world's premier centers for research and treatment for pediatric cancers, the Jimmy Fund Clinic provides compassionate outpatient care for patients and their families.

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

“Play Lady” is not a major you’ll find at any college, and it’s not a requirement listed in any job description. But it’s the role that Lisa Scherber was born to fulfill. For more than 23 years, Scherber, officially the director of patient and family programs, and her small staff have worked to bring smiles to pediatric patients and their families in the Jimmy Fund Clinic. “These kids and their families are going through one of the toughest times of their lives,” Scherber says. “If we can have just a small part of bringing just a little joy to these families, that’s a gift.”
