Since its founding in 1947, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts has been committed to providing adults and children with cancer with the best treatment available today while developing tomorrow’s cures through cutting-edge research.
The mission of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is to provide expert, compassionate care to children and adults with cancer while advancing the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, cure, and prevention of cancer and related diseases. As an affiliate of Harvard Medical School and a Comprehensive Cancer Center designated by the National Cancer Institute, the Institute also provides training for new generations of physicians and scientists, designs programs that promote public health particularly among high-risk and underserved populations, and disseminates innovative patient therapies and scientific discoveries to our target community across the United States and throughout the world.
In addition to medical treatment of cancer, Dana Farber seeks to nurture the physical and emotional health of its patients by providing mind/body support services through the Leonard P. Zakim Center for Integrative Therapies. Services range from individual treatments, such as acupuncture, massage, and Reiki, to group programs for movement, meditation, Tai Chi and creative arts, as well as exercise and nutritional consultations.
