Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
“Dedicated to discovery... Committed to care” is the mission of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. A world leader in cancer research and treatment, the Institute was founded in 1947 by Dr. Sidney Farber and fortified by our historic partner, the Dana Foundation. Dana-Farber is renowned for using its discoveries to improve the treatment of adults and children with cancer. It is the founding member of the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. It is also a federally-designated Center for AIDS Research and a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. Dana-Farber is consistently ranked as the number one cancer hospital in New England and one of the top cancer centers in the country by U.S News & World Report.
“NBCF funding has been incredibly impactful during these difficult economic times, as many of the women who are most in need of screening and preventative care are experiencing unstable insurance coverage due to the national implementation of health care reform and the confusion that it has brought. The support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation has helped to ensure that women who need it most have access to life-saving breast cancer screening at Dana-Farber."
