Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund's second annual Giving Day, May 26, was a special opportunity to bring our community together to show that we're all Jimmy, and together, we have the power to defy cancer. Throughout the day, we shared stories like King's, a resilient young boy being treated for acute lymphoblastic leukemia at Dana-Farber's Jimmy Fund Clinic. Thanks to our incredible community, and a generous $250,000 match from a Dana-Farber Trustee, we raised more than $1.1 million in support of the Defy Cancer Fund and patients like King!

The Defy Cancer Fund helps Dana-Farber to:

  • Pursue innovative early stage research
  • Speed new drugs into clinical trials
  • Maintain a world-class research and clinical team
  • Increase access to care and reduce disparities
  • Meet unanticipated needs, such as those imposed by COVID-19
  • Support special programs that address the physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs of patients and their families

On behalf of our patients, families, and all of us at Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund, we are grateful for your loyal support — today and every day.
