Dana-Farber 2016 Calendar Year End



Double your impact on cancer-fighting research!


Every dollar you give will become two now through September 30 thanks to a generous $100,000 matching challenge from an anonymous donor.

Your lifesaving donation will go far to accelerate critical research at Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund, helping brave patients like Ava, 9, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

Early diagnosis is key to improving survival rates for lung cancer, and Dana-Farber researchers have found that a test that analyzes free-floating DNA in the blood may be able to detect early-stage lung cancer. The findings are from one of the first studies to explore whether sequencing blood-borne DNA is a feasible approach to the early cancer detection. Your support of $100 or more would help us remain at the forefront of discoveries like this.

Dana-Farber provides expert, compassionate care to children and adults and is home to groundbreaking cancer discoveries. Since its founding in 1948, the Jimmy Fund has raised millions of dollars through thousands of community efforts to advance Dana-Farber's lifesaving mission.
