• The Susan F. Smith Center for Women's Cancers at Dana-Farber unites many of the world's leading experts in breast and gynecologic cancers with one common goal: to give all women the latest, most advanced care, including innovative therapies that are often available only through clinical trials.

    A place of hope and action, the Susan F. Smith Center for Women's Cancers offers multi-dimensional services to strengthen mind, body, and soul and to help alleviate mental and emotional burdens. Ending women's cancers are the reason we exist. Everything we do – from the moment a patient pulls into the parking lot until the moment they leave the building after their last treatment – is tailored to the unique needs of women.

  • The Susan F. Smith Center for Women's Cancers at Dana-Farber began with an insight into the nature of cancer – and of human psychology.

    Researchers were discovering that cancers of the breast and female reproductive tract were more closely related at a basic biological level than had been thought. It was also clear that women's cancers – wherever they originate – unite patients in a kind of sisterhood of shared concern and experience.

    Bringing research and clinical programs in all women's cancers under a single umbrella would, it was thought, create a natural alliance for better care and smarter science. That goal proved well-founded.
