Norma-Rose, a patient in Dana-Farber’s Jimmy Fund Clinic

Join us for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund’s annual Giving Day on Wednesday, May 22. On this special day, we will share inspiring stories of strength from Dana-Farber patients like Norma-Rose via email and social media.

You also have the opportunity to TRIPLE your impact for patients and their families, thanks to a generous $250,000 match from a Dana-Farber Trustee, available now through May 22. Plus, when you make your gift before Giving Day, you’ll receive a limited-edition Jimmy Fund tote bag.

Your gift to The Defy Cancer Fund supports The Dana-Farber Campaign, our multi-year fundraising effort to prevent, treat, and defy cancer. Gifts to The Defy Cancer Fund help Dana-Farber tackle cancer’s biggest problems by funding innovative early-stage research, speeding new drugs into clinical trials, expanding access to care, and much more.

With your support on Giving Day, and every day, we can defy cancer and help patients around the world — together.
