Rask Will Visit Jimmy Fund Clinic

BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask will make an appearance at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund Clinic on Thursday, August 2. Dana-Farber provides pediatric care in the Jimmy Fund Clinic and in partnership with Boston Children’s Hospital as Dana-Farber/Children’s Hospital Cancer Center.

After visiting with the children and their families, Rask will be available to speak with the media. The appearance marks the first time that Rask will address the media since finalizing a one-year, $3.5 million contract on July 1.

The 25-year-old goaltender from Tampere, Finland has played in 102 regular season games with Boston, posting a 47-35-11 record, .926 save percentage and 2.20 goals-against average with 11 shutouts. Rask registered his best statistical season in 2009-10 when he led the NHL with a 1.97 goals-against average and .931 save percentage in 45 games.

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.
