This year’s Strike Out Cancer event has begun! Every year, The Jimmy Fund and New England businesses team up to raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s cancer research and treatment initiatives, and you can visit The Paper Store near you to donate and help support cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
From July 24th to August 13th, you can visit The Paper Store near you to donate $1, $3 or $5 towards cancer research and treatment. If you donate in a store, you’ll get to write your name on a baseball pin-up from The Jimmy Fund, and it will be proudly displayed in the store! Every dollar you give to the Jimmy Fund goes directly to cancer research and patient care at Dana-Faber Cancer Institute, and with every dollar raised, you enhance the quality of life for pediatric and adult Dana-Farber patients.
This year, Strike Out Cancer has once again paired with a patient partner to help spread the positive message of cancer research.
Meet Tara, a 27-year-old Dana-Farber Cancer Institute patient and a three-time cancer survivor. She was 16 years old when she was first diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Today, thanks to the cutting-edge research and compassionate patient care she received at Dana-Farber, Tara is a college graduate with a successful career in marketing.
This year, let’s all swing for the fences and Strike Out Cancer with The Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute!
100% of the funds raised through this program will be used for charitable purposes at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Inc. located at 450 Brookline Ave. Boston, MA 02215, (617) 632-3000. The Paper Store Strike Out Cancer program is being conducted by a Commercial Co-Venturer.
