About the Jimmy Fund Clinic
The Jimmy Fund Clinic at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is one of the world's premier centers for pediatric cancer research and treatment. Starting in the 1940s, when Institute founder Sidney Farber, M.D. used drug therapy to achieve the first-ever remissions of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia, Dana-Farber researchers have made strides against virtually every type of cancer that strikes children, from solid tumors that involve individual organs to those that affect blood or lymph. Designed specifically for the comfort and convenience of pediatric cancer patients and their families, the Jimmy Fund Clinic follows Farber's "total patient care" philosophy, assuring that a patient's psychological, family and spiritual needs, as well as their medical needs, are met. Through a unique and long-standing collaboration, Dana-Farber provides pediatric care with Boston Children’s Hospital as Dana-Farber/Children’s Hospital Cancer Center.
