“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. Dana-Farber proudly operates the only mobile Mammography Van in the state of Massachusetts. The Van is on the road 3 days per week and has committed partnerships with 19 community-based health centers to ensure that underserved women in the greater Boston area have access to high-quality breast health education and care.
“The National Breast Cancer Foundation’s steadfast partnership has been a tremendous asset in ensuring that Dana-Farber’s Mammography Van remains an integral part of a cancer prevention strategy that removes access barriers to cancer care for thousands of underserved women in the greater Boston area.” – Magnolia Contreras, Director of Community Benefits
