This three-part documentary presented by Ken Burns, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by former Dana-Farber fellow Siddhartha Mukherjee, MD, covers the first documented appearances of cancer thousands of years ago, through the epic battles today to control, cure, and conquer the disease. This preview from the series includes historical footage of Dana-Farber’s Founder Sidney Farber, MD, and how the Jimmy Fund was started.
