Spring 2023

Dear Friends,

We are thrilled to unveil the Spring 2023 issue of Impact—the first of our newly redesigned magazine and website! As the celebration of the 75th anniversary of Dana-Farber draws to a close, the launch of this magazine and website, DanaFarberImpact.org, reflects our guiding philosophy at Dana-Farber: a commitment to always evolving while honoring our strong, historic foundation and the people who helped build it. 

In launching this website we have strived to make the stories from our community of supporters more accessible and informative. In the upper right corner of each page is a drop-down that lets you choose the language in which you want to view the site, and a search box to help you find topics of interest. Each page also features links at the bottom to facilitate sharing with others in your network, or with family and friends. And we have taken care throughout the website to employ best practices for text, colors, mobile functionality, and other features to improve access for all. 

75 Years of the Jimmy Fund

This launch also coincides with the Jimmy Fund’s 75th anniversary, an incredible milestone which we will be celebrating throughout the year with all of you. Over the past 75 years, support through the Jimmy Fund has enabled Dana-Farber to push boundaries in cancer care and research—reducing the rate of mortality from cancer, strategically growing our physical footprint to reach more patients, recruiting and retaining world-class physicians, nurses, and scientists, and supporting patients through treatment into survivorship. 

With that in mind, we are very excited to move into the next 75 years together with you, our dedicated partners. On DanaFarberImpact.org you will read about the special collaborations advancing our ambitious research agenda, the shared purpose of our Jimmy Fund community, and a selection of very special gifts provided in support of The Dana-Farber Campaign priorities. With spring around the corner, we look forward to longer days, more light, and a fresh presentation of the generosity and commitment of Dana-Farber donors and friends.  

With gratitude,

Melany N. Duval
Senior Vice President and Chief Philanthropy Officer
