• 2009 Turning Point

    Making a Difference

    The National Cancer Institute estimates that in 2008 more than a quarter million women will have been diagnosed with breast or gynecological cancers; just shy of 69,000 will lose their lives to these diseases.

    Thanks to the vision and generosity of donors like you, Dana-Farber continues to offer women diagnosed with cancer the best in care while pursuing research that will lead to more effective and less toxic treatments. Our scientists continue to make progress on many fronts in their ongoing battle against these complex diseases. There are many ways in which patients, families, and friends can contribute as well.
