Dana-Farber’s Holiday Cards & Gifts Presented by Amica Insurance
Embrace a tradition that is full of hope. By purchasing cards, gifts, and more from Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund’s annual Holiday Cards & Gifts, you’ll be spreading cheer while making a difference in the fight against cancer. Since 2003, Holiday Cards & Gifts has raised nearly $7.5 million for cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund.
These revolutionary breakthroughs were made possible because of this support:
- FDA fast-tracking and approval of an experimental drug for non-small cell lung cancer that achieved 95 percent disease control in clinical trials
- FDA “breakthrough therapy” designation of an immunotherapy for relapsed Hodgkin lymphoma with achievement of complete or partial remission in 87 percent of patients
- Discovery that high levels of vitamin D can help protect against colorectal cancer—the first time this link has been shown in a large population—as well as improve survival time for patients with the disease
- Launched the use of a groundbreaking genetic test to speed treatment decisions and improve targeting of treatments in blood cancers
